Asia, Pakistan, P 5753, Trango Towers

P 5753, Trango Towers. A Japanese expedition led by Reiji Nonaka ascended P 5753 (18,875 feet). Also on the expedition were the leader’s wife Yukiko, Toshikazu Fujita, Takao Sasaki and Masahiro Oto. They climbed 63 pitches on the east face and southeast buttress, a difficult route (VI+ , A2), which took them 15 days. They reached the summit on September 8. This foresummit of the great Trango Tower was tried unsuccessfully by two Japanese expeditions in 1986.
