    them Numerous times we were all hit by small rocks The challenge was to dodge the larger ones that could inflict some real damage Both Pasang and I were hit by a larger rock 6 10 inch I got a bruise on my left shoulder and Pasang had his right sleeve on his down suit tore and a bruise to remember it by Near the top of the gully our fixed line ended We got out our ice axes and each of us soloed about 200 yards before reaching some old fixed line that at least gave some sense of security We were able to salvage some of the old fixed line to use on our way back down to protect this section At about 7 30 AM as we neared the summit Lakpa noticed that just below the last rock section leading to the summit appeared to be a climber As we got closer it was clear that we had come upon the missing climber from the previous week on Lhotse from the Czech Republic We had to climb next to him and use the fixed line he was still attached to for our ascent to the summit He had attempted Lhotse without oxygen or Sherpa support It appeared that he was descending because he still had his ATC attached to the fixed line off the summit All three of us moved slowly by him and climbed up the Lhotse summit 27 677 ft at 8 30 AM It was pretty emotional for all three of us On my second attempt I finally got to the top of Lhotse This was Pasang s first 8 000 meter peak He is now an official climbing Sherpa This was Lakpa s second successful Lhotse climb and he seemed thrilled that we all mad it up safely After hugs and handshakes we went about the business of summit pictures on our small perch We stood on a steep snow covered summit about 15 feet long On the Tibet side it drops off nearly vertically for thousands of feet On the Nepal side we had about 10 feet of steep snow than nearly vertical rock for about 50 to 60 feet It was still windy but nothing like the previous days The forecast for a good weather window starting on the 24th had been accurate Our perch on the Lhotse summit Lakpa and Pasang on the summit of Lhotse Looking across at Everest from the summit of Lhotse After about 30 minutes on the small summit we started down Our repel off the summit was made a bit more difficult because we had to avoid landing on the climber that had died on the end of the summit fixed line On our descent down the narrow gully we stayed as close together as possible so that rocks we knocked loose had little time to gain speed before hitting the person below This process worked because we had no injuries on our descent We

    timing because the wind died down shortly after we left out tent at Camp III Today was similar to the previous day as we climbed the fixed lines leading up to the Yellow Band and our Lhotse Camp IV There were few climbers and we were able to move up the fixed lines on the Lhotse face fair4ly quickly Just below the Yellow Band we caught up with a small group of climbers and didn t get by all of them until the top of the Yellow Band We got up to our Camp IV at 2 30 PM There was still wind but it didn t start blowing hard again until we were moved into our tent at nearly 26 000 ft I had been on oxygen since leaving Camp III Now all three of us at Camp IV were using oxygen except when eating drinking or trying to carry on a conversation The process of eating and drinking all you could started as soon as we settled into Camp IV By 7 PM it was time for sleep or at least rest I certainly got more of the later rest as I tried to sleep with the oxygen
