Lhotse summited
06:15 a.m. EDT May 22, 2003
Sergio De Leo (I) and Tshering Jangbu Sherpa (Np) of the International Lhotse Expedition 2003 summited Lhotse on May 21 at 9.30 am local time. The two climbers started out from camp 4 at midnight.

The 11 members of the expedition was permitted to climb 8516 Meter high Mt. Lhotse from West Face for the period of Seventy five days from 8 April 2003 under the leadership of Mr. Fausto De Stefani (51 Yrs), Alpine Guide from Italy.

Lhotse is the world’s 4th highest mountain, but often gets overshadowed by Everest because they are so close. It’s just a hair over 100m shorter than K2, and shares the same route as Everest until 7500m. Lhotse has two lower subsidiary peaks, Lhotse Shar and Lhotse Middle. The later was the highest unclimbed subsidiary peak until 2001 when a team of Russians became the first to summit.
