Changtse. Our joint expedition had nine Chinese: Jin Jun Xi, Wang Yong Feng, Luo Shen, Zhao Yue Min, Chen Jian Jun, Yang Jiu Hui, Sun Yi, Tong Lu and me as leader; and nine Hong Kong members: Zeng Luo, climbing leader, Zhong Jian Min, Zhen Yi Jia, Wu Jia Wei, Luo Wei Qiang, Huang Yan Liang, Chen Zhi An, He Zhi Ming and Ye Jin Wen. We established Base Camp, Advance Base and Camps I, II and III at 5200, 6000, 6300, 6600 and 7000 meters. We wanted to climb Changtse’s north face, where the distance is short, but there were many avalanches. Therefore, we switched to the long but safe northeast ridge. We began the climb on July 1. On July 20, Chinese Wang Yong Feng, Luo Shen and I and Hong Kong climbers Zeng Luo, Zhen Yi Jia and Wu Jia Wei reached the summit.
