Mt. Lhotse Himalayas is for a long time, the fourth highest peak, Lhotse, at 8516 meters (27940 feet), had no separate identity from its dominating neighbor, Mt. Everest. Even its name was mean South Peak implies it is not a mountain in its own right. Once Nepal opened its borders the error became all too clear – from the south Lhotse forms a massive mountain wall.
Although un-attempted until 1953, Byhrenfurth had identified a route to the summit from the South Col. European and American assaults did not make much impact and it was not until spring 1956 that a well-planned Swiss expedition established base camp beneath the Khumbu icefall. Poor weather hampered progress but on 18the May Swiss climbers, Ernest Reiss and Tritz Luchsinger reached the summit of world’s fourth highest peak.
Mt. Lhotse expedition is the daunting south face of Lhotse is ranked as ‘amongst the most difficult in the world’. The most recent star in the firmament of Himalayan climbing, Tomo Cesen from former Yugoslavia, confounded his peers by climbing this massive wall solo in April 1990. The 30-year-old sports journalist not only climbed without fixed camps or bottled oxygen but entirely alone, with very little fixed rope and in the amazing totals elapsed time of 45 hours and 20 minutes from the bottom of the face to the summit.
