This is the first detailed account of the 1988 Slovak Everest Lhotse Expedition. 1988 was an extremely busy year for Everest with climbers all over the mountain. The Slovak team first made an ascent of Lhotse, placing two climbers, Dušan Becík and Jozef Just, on the summit without supplemental oxygen. They then turned their sights on Everest planning to make the second ascent of the British SW Face route without fixed camps or rope, supplemental oxygen, or Sherpa support. Despite harder than expected conditions four climbers (Becík, Just, Peter Božík, Jaroslav Jaško) reached the South Summit where they had to bivouac. Just then went on to reach the Main Summit. All four disappeared on the descent to the South Col in deteriorating conditions. In Czech, no English translation.
