On the Lhotse Expedition climbers are attempting the fourth highest peak in the world (8516m). Lhotse, which means 'south peak', is part of the Everest massif. After several expedition teams had attempted to climb this mountain, it was first successfully climbed by a Swiss expedition in 1956. The lower peak, Lhotse Shar (8383m), is generally considered as a separate 8000m peak.
Lhotse East, Lhotse Central and Lhotse Shar
Lhotse Shar (8383m) was first climbed by an Austrian expedition in 1970. Japanese, South Koreans, and Germans attempted it from various routes. Polish and Italians also climbed to the summit, as did a following German expedition in 1977. The South Face of the Lhotse wall is one of the largest mountain faces in the world. This section of the climb has been unanimously declared the most dangerous, together with the Khumbu Icefall. The South Face, though attempted many times, was successfully climbed only in 1990 by a solo expedition from Yugoslavia. This beautiful massif also holds immense promise, as it is little developed and offers fascinating opportunities.
