Ten Years After
Wednesday, 25 April 2018 00:30

Today marks the 10th anniversary of 8000ers.com. To be honest, the situation is critical. The work increased a lot and there is still not enough income just to survive. We want to publish many research results and a huge amount of updated tables, but first the website must be renewed and this is not possible without the help from the people, who are still interested. A fund, private or company sponsoring or at least enough donations would be helpful.

Last year I asked nearly the same and published an Everest nations table with all important information, but nearly nobody donated.

The new Everest nations table is still not complete, but I will post an Everest daily table including changes to former years.

If there is no existence saving support in the near future, a large part of the High Asian chronicles is highly endagered.

Everest Daily to 2017

The Pakistan season was quite long this year. Here is the draft table with all ascents known.

Thanks a lot especially to Rodolphe and Thaneswar! Also to Boyan for the addition and corrections today, October 15th! Update November 12th: Again there are two additions on Broad Peak. Please note that on August 4th nobody went to the true summit despite some of them still celebrate it.

 

 
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:

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

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.
