Karl Herrligkoffer returned to Nanga Parbat in 1968 for an attempt at the Rupal Face. He was obsessed with the difficult South-East spur and wanted to climb the mountain there and he would launch several more expeditions to this route later. The expedition was thwarted at 7100 meter when German climber GŁnter Strobl broke his leg in a fall. The expedition members performed a remarkable feat in lowering him 3000 meters down the mountain. No summit, but an equally astounding feat if you ask me. After that, the expedition was over with everyone exhausted from the successful heroic rescue mission.
