2013 Lhotse

IMG_7961

In 2013, I attempted Lhotse’s West Face without supplemental oxygen. It was my first experience on an 8000m peak. A lot of ups and downs can happen during such a long trip, but I performed well physically and learned a lot about the process of acclimatizing and logistics involved in climbing at such high altitudes. Unfortunately, the weather conditions weren’t right on summit day, but I was thankful for a safe and fulfilling trip. Here are some pictures and stories from the experience:
