Today Tunç Findik summited Kangchenjunga! It is his 6th different Main-8000er after Everest (twice, once from Nepal and once from Tibet), Cho Oyu, Lhotse, Dhaulagiri I and Makalu. He also is the first Turkish climber, who ascended Kangchenjunga! Two Sherpa climbers were with him on top, Dawa II (6 times Everest, last year Makalu) and Mingma, who finished all 14 Main-8000ers. He is the first Sherpa climber to do so! More about this historical feat soon! Swiss Guntis Brands, who attempted to be the oldest climber on the mountain, turned around at about 8200 m!
