Summit day : Wek-up 3 am in the morning, having brekfast and set get ready to climb. Nice weather, temperature was max -5° in the morning, blue sky with sun so team enjoy climbing. 
From hight camp to crampons poit is rocky with ice in the morning need basic knowlege of rock climbing, to crampons poit till summit is snow part around 40° to 50° slope so most be need knowlege how to work with front poit crampons on ice and hard snow. After around 6 hours climbing we arrived on summit. Always pleasure to see smile with great emotion when climber's are on the top .
Lobuche  (also spelt Lobuje) which lies close to the Khumbu Glacier. There are two main peaks, Lobuche Far East and Lobuche East (often mistaken for Lobuche West which is a separate mountain further west). At 6,145 metres (20,161 ft), Lobuche East is 26 metres (85 ft) higher. Between the two peaks is a long deeply notched ridge.
The first recorded ascent of Lobuche East was made by Laurence Nielson and Sherpa Ang Gyalzen on April 25, 1984.
