Lhotse South Face (8516 m)

You can see all of 3.2 km of Lhotse South Face ! Can you ever imagine how it can be scaled ! Lhotse has three summits: Lhotse Main (8,516 meters), Lhotse Shar (8,383 meters), and Lhotse East (8,413 meters). Russian expedition climbed the South Face in 1990. I made this picture from the hill at altitude about 5100 m close to the north ridge of Ama Dablam.
