A group of climbing Sherpas today successfully opened a climbing route to the Camp IV on Mt Everest.
According to Iswari Paudel, Managing Director at Himalayan Guides, climbing Sherpas reached the South Col (8,000 metres) this afternoon fixing ropes above Camp III. “The team reached the Lhotse Face at 7,400 metres yesterday,” he said. With the opening of a route, the expedition members could now deposit supplies at Camp IV, he added.
