Molamenqing did enjoy a temporary fame in the early 1980's. At the time it was one of the highest unclimbed peaks in the world . A team from New Zealand applied to the authorities to climb the peak, and became one of the first Western teams to be allowed to climb in Tibet since before World War II. The team succeeded in making the first, and so far the only, ascent of the mountain. They started from the east side of the peak, but their long route went via the north side of Shishapangma and approached the summit from the west.
The lists no other attempts on this peak.
