Lhotse Shar Attempt. South Korean Heo Young-Ho and Sherpas Ang Dorje and Ongchu attempted the normal route, the southeast ridge, of Lhotse Shar after leaving Kathmandu very late, on May 5. They reached 8100 meters on May 29 and then gave up. They needed at least four or five more days, including some rest days, to complete the climb, but the season ended on May 31.
