The normal route for the Dorje Lakpa peak is described below. It is a good technique in ice is essential and we envisage placing fix ropes in the favorable places, which will help climbing team to achieve their goal over mountainThe first attempt and successful climb recorded is by a Japanese expedition in the late 1960s by the west ridge.Another attempt was made by a 7-members-team Italian expedition ADC89 during fall of 1989, again from the west ridge and approach from south. The climb was stopped after Camp 1 at approx 6100m due to instable snow and avalanche danger on the ridge. In the following years (1991?) a German expedition successfully climbed the mountain again by the west ridge. In 1992, Carlos Buhler made a solo climb of Dorje Lhakpa. Buhler did not intend initially to climb solo. The climb became a solo of the West Ridge after Carlos' partner, Jon Aylward, became ill at base camp. The climb is described in Carlos' 1992 American Alpine Journal article "Alone on Dorje Lhakpa".
