Langshisha Ri. A five-man Japanese expedition led by Hiroshi Inoue, made the first ascent of Langshisha Ri (6300 meters, 20,670 feet). They had two high camps. They climbed the south face, finding difficult climbing that required fixing 4500 feet of rope between Camp I and the summit. On April 23 Takuya Kujimoto and Sherpa Pasang Norbu got to the top, followed the next day by Inoue, two Japanese and another Sherpa.
