Thanks to Frank Verwys for adding this peak.

Kusum Kangguru is one of the first "real" mountains which can be seen on the Jiri- Everest BC-trek.Its ridges are very steep and razorsharp. It is the most difficult trekking peak( fee: about $300) in the Everest region. Serious climbing skills are needed for this mountain. One glance is sufficient to know that this is a very serious climb. Kusum Kangguru repelled four attempts before the first ascent was made by a Japanese party. A number of different routes have subsequently been made, among them the E-face. Non of these could be considered easy.
