Lhotse Trip Report (#4414)

I was unfortunate to leave C4 alone on 20 May 2000. The other 3 men that were meant to climb with me gave up due to health problems and logistic reasons (?!). Therefore I climbed alone, without oxygen and on 40cm deep snow. Very tiring and time consuming! I reached the end of the couloir on the west face (+-8400m?) by 15h when a storm came and I decided to descend. I enjoyed my climb very much!!
