Climbing the Lhotse face
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.
