Kammerlander's Book of Untruth published
Monday, 28 May 2012 12:55

Story updated again on June 12th, 2013:

The update became necessary because Kammerlander wrote a threatening email to the editor! Scans of historical documents in English are uploaded and more important details are added in bold letters.

(Sorry, the text is still only in German language).

The updated document you may find here.

Story updated December 3rd, 2012:

The book "Seven Second Summits" was published on November 12th. It is full of truth bending and confirmed untruth. Check the overview in German here.

Story updated August 5th, 2012:

Kammerlander reported that he summited Mount Logan now correctly. In an Italian report his manager Sigi Pircher stated, that the true high point of Mount Logan is just 12 metres higher than the point, where Kammerlander "summited" in 2010. Actually it is widely known, that the Main-Peak is 34 metres higher and 2,35 km distant to the West-Peak.  It was at least an avoidable mistake of Kammerlander to miss the Main-Peak, so why he did not just confess his error and was thankful to his critics? The opposite was the case, he insulted his critics in a German TV broadcast badly before he went to Mount Logan again. So the truth bending continues concerning Mount Logan! Check the facts here!

And what about Trikora/Mandala and Dykh Tau? If someone wants to be accepted having "written Alpine History", then he must give the public all proofs. Here are the facts that he also did not summit the Main-Peak of Puncak Trikora and that there is no evidence on his Dykh Tau claim as well.

Kammerlander is undoubtedly one of the best mountaineers of our time with many fine achievements. Why does he feel the need to be flexible with the truth? Is it just pressure from his manager and/or his sponsors? It would be really interesting to know his honest excuses. It is not too late to set the facts straight and to apologize for the insults!

History by Lady Climbers

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.
