Tawetse is one of the many striking 6-thousanders in the Khumbu region (Sagarmatha NP), And is situated oposite of one of Nepal's most well-known mountains: Ama Dablam (6812m).Now follows a description I have found somewhere on the net of the normal route:
Description: This climbs the south ridge and south face to gain the summit. Approach: go up bouldery slopes with a couple of pitches roped to gain a small glacier. You have to attain the south east ridge at the lowest point of a broad plateau area. Go up this platform and traverse easily across to the right onto the south face. climb the left side of the south face to the summit. A detailed map of this region (Tawetse, Everest) can be downloaded from: siou.free.fr
