We summited the true summit of Lobuche East with clear blue skies at 9:15 AM after a start from high camp at the lake around 16,500' at 3:00 AM.

The summit party consisted of Bob Nokoff and myself, with Gelu Sherpa and Buddha Tamang from Mountain Monarch.

Initially I mistook Lobuche West for Lobuche East, so I decided to be a guardian for this peak to (hopefully) help clarify the route and summit descriptions.

I will attempt to respond to emails if you have questions about the climb or this mountain.
