The Lhotse Face is the steepest part of the climb. See the pink rope?
|It is very steep on the Lhotse Face. Sherpas climb up the mountain and put ropes onto the mountain before we climbed it. I wore a special belt called a harness that I connected to the ropes. This way if I slipped I would not fall too far. We would stop often and rest since it is very high and the climbing makes you breathe hard. It is like running real hard for a long time.|
