Asia, Nepal, Langshisha Ri

Langshisha Ri. A nine-man, two-woman Japanese expedition made the second ascent of Langshisha Ri (6300 meters, 20,670 feet), using the same route, the south face, climbed by other Japanese in the spring. On October 6 the leader Shozo Terakawa and five others left Camp II at 18,700 feet and got to the top. The next day two women, Kumiko Imamura and Akiko Sakamoto and two Sherpas reached the summit, followed on October 9 by three other members. (Information from Iwa To Yuki, N° 93.)
