Today we wake up at 1 am have a hearty plentiful breakfast and start climbing to our destination. We begin climbing the Southeast Ridge through a moderately steep snow and ice section. If necessary, we fix ropes along the route. We ascend gradually to a plateau and then navigate around to an exposed ridge, which we will follow to the summit slopes. After about six hours of steady climbing, we reach the far eastern summit. From here it is a steady climb along the summit ridge towards the east summit, which for us marks our summit (also known as false summit). The main summit is not far in distance but requires some technical climbing which is normally beyond the ability of novice climbers, certainly in terms of the time it would take. And this section of the climb is only for very adventuresome people, as there are huge drops on both sides, so this section will be fixed with a rope. From the top, we are well rewarded with superb views across to Ama Dablam, Makalu, Lhotse, Everest, Nuptse, Changtse (in Tibet) Pumori, Gyachung Kang, Cho-Oyu, and the innumerable peaks to the west and south. After snapping pictures on the summit and enjoying the view, we retrace our steps back to High Camp and continue our trek with tired legs down to Thukla.
