Peak 6,350m,first ascent. Although he had a permit to climb 6,110m Gaugiri, Kiyoshi Ishii from Japan did not attempt the mountain. Instead he moved further east and climbed an unnamed peak over the border in Tibet. The ascent of this 6,350m summit was made via the east ridge on July 7 with Kumar Rai and Panima Sherpa.
