Climbing Chukhung Tse?
Hey guys, I'm heading out to hike the 3 passes trek in April/May and was hoping to do Chukhung Tse on the way. There doesn't seem to be much info on the route - only info for Chukhung Ri, the smaller of the peaks. The ridge in between the two looks doable, if rather sketchy (especially in bad weather). I've seen some people saying you can approach from the east on the glacier and ascend a scree slope that way. Anyone done this? I won't have any mountaineering gear so I don't want to do anything dangerous, but it would be great to break 19k on the trek if possible!
