Overview

The Lobuche peak consists of two different summits, East (6119m) and West (6145m). A continuous ridge connects them but there is still a sharp gap and a considerable distance between them. While the East peak is a trekking peak, the West is known as an expedition peak. We will take the East route. Laurence Nielson and Ang Gyalzen Sherpa made the first ascent to Lobuche East on 25 April 1984, although it could also be that others have reached the summit before. But no records are available.


Lobuche East is one of the classic ‘trekking peaks’ in Nepal but also considered one of the most challenging ‘trekking peaks’ in the Everest region. It is officially classified as a group “B” trekking peak by Nepal Mountaineering Association and the climber must be proficient in the use of ice climbing gear. A good condition and a dawn or pre-dawn start is recommended.

 

It offers various existing routes. The dark triangle of its rocky East face rises over the moraines of the Khumbu Glacier to a spectacular skyline, forming the south ridge. Descending a marked notch and climbing steep snowy slopes to the top reach the peak of Lobuche East.


On most occasions, the mountain is climbed on the summit ridge only as far as a subsidiary snow summit, South East of the true peak and before the notch. This peak is identified as the false peak. To reach the true summit of Lobuche East, which is a continuation on the knife-edged ridge heading North West, and it is another couple hours climb from the false summit. Very few climbers who attempt this peak reach the real summit, but mostly attain the worth-while false summit.
