Chulu West. A four-man Taiwanese team was under my leadership. On April 12 Chang Ming-lung and Jangbu Sherpa reached the summit of Chulu West (6583 meters, 21,598 feet) at 6:10 P.M. They had spent ten hours from Camp II at 20,000 feet because of the knee-deep snow. This is the highest peak climbed by Taiwanese.
