From basecamp at ~16,500, the climb begins with a series of switchback traverses past high camp at ~18,000ft on a relatively well packed trail. There is then a short section of 3rd class scrambling up narrow gullies which begins just above high camp, and there were occasional 4th class moves, but was pretty much hiking on stable rock for the majority of the approach. Eventually, well above high camp you reach a very short ridge traverse of a few hundred feet before you hit glacier, snow, and h...[more]   Browse More Classics in International

Hi. Cool that someone is collecting some topo-info on Nepal. In the Khumbu (Everest) region there are two more major rock climbing spots: Thame Teng (of which I have made a topo here: 27crags.com/crags/thame-teng) and a wall above Samde a small outcrop of the village Thamo (not Thame!). The Samde wall is absolutey stunning and, more importantly at that elevation, south facing. So it has great potential. There are approximately 12 routes on the face at the moment, but potential for a lot more good-looking routes up to something like 200m. If someone is interested in bolting some routes or doing some trad FAs then that would be a good place to go.
