Lobuche Peak Climbing is the hardest of the trekking peaks that commercial groups attempt. In the Everest Region (Khumbu) only Kwangde and Kusum Kangru are more difficult. The main peak of Lobuche is Lobuche West. This is not included in the trekking peak permit. Therefore for a legal climb to Lobuche West (Main Peak) needs an Expedition Peak Permit. This permit is considerably more expensive. Now Lobuche East (20075ft, 6119m. Good conditions and a dawn or pre-dawn start is recommended.
The average gradient for the Lobuche Peak Climbing is not steep, but there are areas of messy seracs that require two axes, front pointing and belaying. The ridge route is sometimes easier. Many climbers who take this approach stop at the top of the ridge, thinking this is the summit of Lobuche East. But in-fact a continuation on the knife-edged ridge is needed (roped!) to reach the true summit.
