Pumori Winter Ascent via East Face. A Japanese expedition climbed a new route on the east face of Pumori. Hiroshi Aota and Yoshiki Sasahara made a quick alpine-style ascent that took them to the summit on the third day, December 3. The leader Kazuyuki Takahashi caught cold on a trekking peak before the climb and did not even go to Base Camp.
