On May 11th were several ascents of Makalu and one of the summiteers was German climber Ralf Dujmovits!

It was his 13th 8000er and there is only Lhotse left now. His wife Gerlinde Kaltenbrunner and David Göttler are now waiting for him in Tengpoche.

Yesterday also Denis Urubko summited Makalu and this was also his 13th 8000er. He just needs Cho Oyu now to finish all the 14.

The collectors table is already updated!

Today the names of the successful climbers on May 5th were confirmed: South Koreans Kim Chang-Ho (his 5th 8000er, he climbed without supplementary oxygen!), Park Juong-Yong and Seo Seong-Ho accompanied by Sherpa climbers Tshering Dorje, Mingma and Pasang. They were members of the "Dynamic Busan Makalu-Lhotse Expedition".
