The true East Peak is quite striking and is reached by descending into a marked notch and climbing steep snow/ice slopes to the top. This is rarely climbed and is often mistaken for Lobuje East but our top Sherpa climber knows the correct route and peak. Most attempts on the mountain climbed the submit ridge only as far as a subsidiary snow summit, before the notch, south east of the true peak. The false summits east of the notch have been attained by numerous climbers but the first recorded ascent of the true Lobuje East seems to have been made by Laurence Nielson and Sherpa Ang Gyalzen on 25th April 1984.It seems likely that others may have reached the true summit before this date but no records exists.
