Expedition news...

High-mountaineers from Soviet Union didn't have any possibility to explore Himalaya up to 1982 year. By that time the first ascents of main Himalayan peaks have been made. In 1982 our alpinists made incredibly difficult route of Everest. In 1989 the second Russian expedition in Himalaya solved once more very difficult problem - full travers of all of four 8-thousands' peaks of Kanchenunga.

Up to nowadays the problem of ascent of Lhotse Middle was unsolved - hanging walls on the South and on the North, very long and cut crests on the West and on the East. There were four attempts of Lhotse Middle since 1997 and in the spring of 2001 Russian expedition (including 5 climbers from Yekaterinburg) made ascent of this last 8thousand!
