Asia, Nepal, Lhotse, First American Female Ascent

Lhotse, First American Female Ascent. It was reported that on May 26, Christine Feld Boskoff became the first American woman—and second woman ever—to climb Lhotse. She had climbed to Camp IV (7805m) by her husband, Keith Boskoff. After waiting out a day of storms, Keith was not up to the ascent, so Christine continued alone to the summit, which she reached at 12:30 p.m. (Climbing 171)
