Gangchempo 1993

A very strong seven-person team planned to make the first official ascent of this 6,387m peak in the Langtang Himal by means of the NW face, but in view of apparent objective danger attempted the W ridge instead. A high point of 6,000m was reached before unseasonal bad weather and lack of time brought the expedition to an end.
