Reliable Sources report that Tomaz Humar is stuck on Langtang Lirung with a
broken leg. The unconfirmed report states that Tomaz was doing a "solo
climb on Langtang Lirung and broke his leg so he is stuck somewhere around
6000 meters. Four sherpas got dropped of at Langtang Lirung base camp this
morning by helicopter to rescue this guy off the mountain."
Langtang Lirung is the high point of the
Langtang Himal; southwest of Shisha Pangma, it is 7,227 metres (23,711
feet) tall. It is believed the first ascent was by Seishi Wada and Pemba
Tsering on a Japanese-Sherpa expedition, via the same East Ridge route.
