Asia, Nepal, Lang Shisha Ri Attempt

Lang Shisha Ri Attempt. Japanese and Nepalese under the leadership of Isao Yamazaki attempted the south ridge of this virgin peak (6294 meters, 20,650 feet) by its south ridge. One Japanese and one Nepalese reached 19,300 feet on October 9 after a week of climbing but gave up when the ridge got too difficult for them.
