Unnamed Peak 6184m, attempt. Situated northeast of Phabrang, this unnamed and unclimbed peak was unsuccessfully attempted during July and August by Yasutada Sawairi’s 12-member Japanese team. The expedition approached from Darcha on the Manali to Leh Military Road and made base camp above Jankar Sumdo. From here they followed the glacier on the right flank and on August 8 achieved a maximum height of ca 5750m. Much bad weather and a constant danger from stonefall are cited as the reasons for failure. In 1999 another Japanese expedition had attempted this peak via the same route.
