Kanchenjunga, Nepal and India

Kangchenjunga is the third highest mountain in the world. The huge massif of Kangchenjunga is buttressed by great ridges running roughly due east to west and north to south, forming a giant X. These ridges contain a host of spectacular 6-7,000 meter peaks, according to Summit Post. The climb is physically very demanding with long days and sections with a lot of exposure. The date rate is about 20 percent.
