Lhotse is the fourth highest mountain in the world. Its long east-west crest is located immediately south of Everest, and the summits of the two mountains are connected by the South Col, a vertical ridge that never drops below 8,000 meters.
The summit Lhotse East or Middle (8,414m)is situated on the ridge between main summit of Lhotse 8,516m and Lhotse Shar 8,400m. Any separate ascents up to this summit are practically excluded because of the steep walls and very crossed relief. It is possible to summit only by climbing up to main Lhotse or Lhotse Shar before and then make a traverse of a very crossed ridge with a length about 1,000 meter the lowest of the three Lhotse summits.
