One of the trekking peaks open in Nepal, Lobuche East is situated right above Lobuche which is just a day camp before trekking to the classical trail to Gorekshep and Everest Base Camp. Lobuche has two summits, east and west, heights of 6119m and 6145m respectively but we will summit to the East at our expeditions.
While not the highest of the peaks, Lobuche peak, even at 6119m is considered highly technical scale to summit .Lobuche east climbing requires a excellent use of expeditions styles of rope (Main and fix rope), climbing involves some step and slippery rocks slabs and snow slopes to reach south west ridge, which is just below the glacier, which is along with the high camp, then the final expeditions climb would be sharp and exposed ridge which leads to the real summit. Depending on the seasons, the summit to the Lobuche east required climbing with angle of 70 to 75 degrees with some belayed snow or ice climbing, thus it is most demanding.
You must be comfortable for the basic rock climbing and should have a basic knowledge of alpine climbing techniques of using rope climbing, ice axe and crampons and abseiling.
