Alpine History: Triple Seven Summits finished
Tuesday, 27 August 2013 12:28

August 23rd again marks a date for Alpine History. After a lot of difficulties to confirm the true Second and Third Seven Summits including survey expeditions the challenge was finished with Shkhara on that date by Christian Stangl. Yes, he made a big mistake with the K2 fairy tale in 2010, but with his patience and detailed evidence since then he on one hand is now the first confirmed climber, who summited the Second Seven Summits as well as the Third Seven Summits and on the other hand he helped to establish correct geographical figures. Check the updated table here!

First photos here and here!
