Shishapangma is one of the easiest eight-thousanders to climb and was the last 8,000 meter peak climbed due to its location entirely within Tibet and the restrictions on outside visitation to the region imposed by Tibetan and Chinese authorities. The standard route ascends from the north side, and boasts relatively easy access, with vehicle travel possible to base camp at 5,000 m (16,400 ft). More technically demanding are routes on the steeper Southwest Face, which involve 2,200 metres (7,218 feet) of ascent on a 50-degree slope. These are ideal for a difficult alpine-style ascent.
