Lhotse is the fourth-highest mountain on earth. With a topographic prominence far below 1500 meters it is the only of the 14 eight-thousanders not considered to be an ultra-prominent peak. This is due to Lhotse being a neighboring summit of Everest. Both peaks are connected via the South Col just below 8000 meters. Lhotse was first climbed in 1956, about three years after Everest. The first ascent of the sub peak Lhotse Middle was only accomplished in 2001, making it the highest unclimbed point on earth for nearly 50 years.
