Langshisha Ri Attempt. Nine Japanese led by Kosuke Shiota attempted to climb Langshisha Ri by the southwest ridge. A high point of 6100 meters was reached on October 19 by Akihiko Yagi, Sugiyama Yoshiaki and Kirken Sherpa and then the climb was given up because of bad snow conditions and a lack of food and time.
