The Everest summit waves are very well documented on Alan Arnette's website. Apart from it two lady climbers were writing history. It is reported, that Iranian lady climber Parvaneh Kazemi (41) ascended Everest and Lhotse in a single season. Everest on May 18th and Lhotse on May 25th, both accompanied by Nima Gyalzen II (26). 28 men did this before, but she is the first woman to do so. Also she is the first Iranian woman on Lhotse. Congratulations! 

Brazilian born American woman Cleo Weidlich (48) summited Dhaulagiri I today (May 26th) and is now the first woman, who ascended Annapurna I (on April 20th) and Dhaulagiri I in a single season, which was done by ten men before. Congratulations as well!

 
Kammerlander: A Media Campaign?
Tuesday, 15 May 2012 13:58

Hans Kammerlander is on his way to correct his error on Mount Logan. Before he left, he was in a TV broadcast to talk about a "media campaign" against him and to insult his critics. The whole text with all claims and facts was actually written in German.

Hopefully it is possible for the readers to translate the German text here to know each important detail. A shorter version was published here.
