Asia, Tibet, Lixin and Changste

Lixin and Changste. It was reported that a group of Italians climbed two 7000-meter peaks last spring. Claudio Bastrntaz reached the top of Lixin Peak (7113 meters) on May 13 while his partner, Dando Pignataro, stopped at around 7000 meters. On May 18, the two set out from Everest’s Advanced Base Camp for the North Col. A little before the Col Pignataro decided to descend. Bastrentaz continued alone up the southeast ridge of Changste (7580 meters). (High Mountain Sports 158)
