Two Updated Everest Tables
Tuesday, 25 April 2017 12:37

Today it is nine years ago that I launched this website. I hoped to be able to survive with it, because I posted many unique tables and a donation button. Since then only a handful of people spent some money for me to survive. Today I post two updated Everest tables. First one is the nations breakdown, because the next one will be number 100. Second one is the no additional oxygen table, because the number 200 will be this year, if successful. I have many other updated tables on my computer, but still need sponsors or more donation just to survive. If someone likes my work and would like to have some more of my tables please donate or find sponsors for me. Otherwise I will not be able to continue and we cannot celebrate 10 years next year.

Here are the direct links to the two tables, I hope you like them:

High Asia to 6650 m!
Monday, 31 August 2015 12:17

A new table is published here.

 

The old table to 6750 is expanded now to 6650 m with all new research results from partly restricted and rare maps. I hope you enjoy!

 
Hagshu from 6515 to 6657 m
Thursday, 07 May 2015 12:50

An Indian mountain in Kishtwar was correctly resurveyed by a Slovenian expedition in 2014 and it changed the High Asian systematics quite a bit. Please download the updated table here.
