Lhotse and Makalu Summit Areas
Wednesday, 23 March 2022 16:19

Today the series of summit area posts continues. This time Lhotse and Makalu. In the past there were several ascents not on the true summit on both mountains, so maybe with these detailed reports it is now  possible to know, where they stopped. As soon as possible the much more difficult summit history for Manaslu, Annapurna I and Dhaulagiri I will also be explained in detail here. It seems that nearly nobody climbed all the 14 true summits and there will be no more accepted records including one or more of the false summit claims for the future and also the past. It is sure, that Miss Hawley and Xavier Eguskitza, the two main chroniclers of the past, would never have accepted all these false summits, if they had known it. Also it is just unfair to note and count false summits the same way as true summits. This is just logical.  Makalu Lhotse
