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 m. The summit of Lhotse East or Middle (8,414 m) is situated on the ridge between main summit of Lhotse 8,516 m and Lhotse Shar 8,400 m.Separate ascents up to this summit are practically excluded because of the steep walls. It is possible to summit only by climbing up to main Lhotse or Lhotse Shar before and then make a traverse of a ridge with a length about 1,000 meters- the lowest of the three Lhotse summits. Though the mountain has a local name, it is still not included in the eight- thousand meters high mountain list. Because it is just a subsidiary peak of Lhotse, the 4th highest mountain of the world.
