Asia, Nepal, Khumbu Himal, Hungchi, Attempt

Hungchi, attempt. Recently brought on to the permitted list, this 7036m mountain on the Nepal-Tibet watershed south of the Nup La had never received an official attempt before last autumn. Takatsugu Shiro’s six-member Japanese party from Osaka attempted the southwest ridge but gave up on October 11 at 6700m.
