Manda I (6511m), ascent. A two-member Korean team attempted this peak via the west face and north ridge, the route taken by the 1981 first ascensionists. Kim Hyoung-Duk and an Indian High Altitude Porter, Laxman, made a final push on September 17. Laxman stopped short of the summit but the Korean continued to the top
