View South from the Hillary Step, May 19th, 2012

On his successful Everest trip this past spring, RobSC took this fantastic shot: A view over the Khumbu region to the south of Everest from the top of the Hillary Step on the morning of May 19th, 2012.
Just a SEA of beautiful peaks!
ID'ing the major peaks in this shot was more work than the previous two. Not only am I less familiar with these peaks, but the softness of both the air and the photo decrease the contrast. The crazy terrain and often-conflicting maps and other resources don't help much, either!
Once again, I owe Guenter Seyfferth many thanks for assistance with this pic.
Please enjoy this fantastic landscape!
