  • Lobuche (16,175 ft.) to EBC (17,500 ft.) - Lhotse Expedition - Daily Dispatches
    on our way to EBC We were fortunate to have very little traffic on this section of the trail On previous trips there was always heavy trekker climber and yak traffic on this trail As a side note the yak I refer to is probably a crossbreed called a zopkyo A true yak is a long haired bull The female counterpart is a nak When a yak or nak is crossed with a Nepalese cow or bull you get an infertile zopkyo male or dzum female Terri our guide Pasang and I arrived at EBC at 2 30 PM We got the typical greeting of hot drinks and a Katha ceremonial scarf It was great to see some of our Sherpa friends Kame Pemba and Nigma climbing Sherpa s on previous trips The head cook Pasang had been a cook for me on trips to Tibet and Ama Dablam By dinner time we were settled into our tent that also had our own storage tent next door I had asked to have a tent that was away from the dinning and cook tents Our location certainly fit the bill and had a great view of the Khumbu Icefall Terri was

  • Rest day for Terri at Lobuche (16,175 ft.)- Trekking peak climb for me - Lhotse Expedition - Daily Dispatches
    the time we reached the fixed lines we had passed them I would have liked a little slower pace because I really slowed down on the upper snow slopes We had about six inches of new snow over night so the rock was partially covered on much of the route Wearing crampons on these slopes was not much fun We scratched our way up the many rock ledges which were made easier with the fixed lines placed by larger expeditions They use this trekking peak for training and acclimatization for their clients on their way to Everest Pasang and I made good time up to the upper snow slopes As I previously mentioned I slowed down quite a bit near the top but we still reached to top at 7 AM The morning was still clear so we had great views of Cho Oyu Everest Nuptse Lhotse and Makalu We took our pictures and headed down After several rapels we started passing climbers on their way up We got back to our advance base camp at 9 AM After a quick snack we packed up and headed back to Lobuche We got back to Lobuche at noon I had gear

  • Rest day for Terri at Lobuche (16,175 ft.)- Trekking peak climb for me - Lhotse Expedition - Daily Dispatches
    a few hours to get up to 17 500 ft The hike involved going back down the trail towards the memorials and then heading up through a relatively steep boulder strewn slope There were short sections that had fixed line along several narrow ledges that allowed us to gain the rocky snowy saddle for our advance base camp We got our tent set up and we squeezed in for lunch

  • Pheriche (13,911 ft.) to Lobuche (16,175) - Lhotse Expedition - Daily Dispatches
    was ready for a pretty long day The hike out of Pheriche is almost always windy and today was no exception After 2 hours we reached the climb that takes you up to Duglha I have not seen any change since my first trip through Duglha As usual it was loaded with trekkers and climbers catching a break on their way to or from Lobuche We also stopped and had hot drinks After Duglha there is a moderate climb up to and area on the old Khumbu glacier moraine that has many memorials for those that have died on Everest It is a very beautiful location and is hard for one not to be effected by the feel of the area The trail gradient eases off and within a few more hours we arrive at Lobuche at 2 PM We again had some hot drinks waiting for our porters They arrived at 3 PM and Pasang helped us get moved into our room I spent some time sorting out gear and clothing for climbing Lobuche East 19 805 ft This will help my acclimatization for Lhotse We will hike up to advance base camp 17 500 ft in the morning
