Lhotse Shar Peak

Local name洛子夏尔峰 - Lhotse Shar Peak
LocationShigatse, China

Lhotse Shar is a subsidiary mountain of Lhotse, at 8,383 m high. It has the highest fatality rate of all the eight-thousanders – for every two people who summit the mountain, one person dies attempting to. However, this is primarily because most climbers tend to try to ascend to the primary peak of Lhotse, rather than the lowest summit of the mountain. It was first climbed by Sepp Mayerl and Rolf Walter on 12 May 1970.

On 27 April 1980, Nicolas Jaeger was seen for the last time at 8,200 metres altitude during an attempted ascent of Lhotse Shar in Nepal, and is presumed dead.
