Lhotse summited?
09:53 a.m. EDT May 12, 2003
Scott Woolums of the Adventures International team reports they have heard a Japanese team summited Lhotse yesterday.

No additional reports have come in about this season's first possible 8000m summit.

In addition to an Everest team, there are also two climbers on the Adventures International crew that are going for Lhotse, 851m - Leader John Rust, and Lorenzo Gariano.

Adventures International is small, personal US outfit led by Scott Woolums who summited Everest in 2002. The team has just returned to base camp after resting down in the Khumbu valley.
