Langtang Lirung Attempt. Steve Tenney, Chris Wood, Chris Reveley and I were unsuccessful in an alpine-style attempt on the south ridge of Langtang Lirung (7234 meters, 23,734 feet). Advanced Base Camp at 16,000 feet was abandoned in late April after twelve days on the mountain due to extremely heavy snow and avalanche potential.
