Langtang Lirung Attempt. A Spanish expedition of five led by Miguel Angel Puertas attempted to climb Langtang Lining by its southeast ridge, successfully ascended by Japanese in the spring of 1986. Strong winds prevented the climb. The highest point reached was 6300 meters, gained by Javier Valero on October 13.
