In Novemver 2008 Yasushi Okada and Hiroyoshi Manome opened a new route on the Northeast face of Teng Kang Poche(6487m) in the Khumb Region of the Nepal Himalaya. This route has the altitude difference of 1900m and was given the grade of ED. It was named "Moonlight" after the full moon night of bivouac. To adapt to the altitude they stayed on Parchamo Peak(6279m). On November 9 they test-climbed the lower rock ridge up to 5100m, and on the 13th they reached 5650m.
