After 20 long years he climbed an 8000er summit again!

Yesterday Artur Hajzer summited Dhaulagiri I together with his companion Robert Szymczak. This was his first 8000er ascent after he stopped climbing because of the loss of his friend Jerzy Kukuczka. He summited Tirich Mir in 1983, Manaslu in 1986, Annapurna I in winter 1987, Shisha Pangma by a new route along the West ridge in the autumn of 1987 and Annapurna I East-Peak in 1988 by a new route. The last three ascents he was accompanied by Jerzy Kukuczka.
