KAF doubts Miss Oh's Kangchenjunga Ascent
Friday, 27 August 2010 11:18

The question about who is the first lady climber, who ascended all 14 Main-8000ers is still not answered completely! Even the Korean Alpine Federation (KAF) is doubting the Kangchenjunga ascent of Oh Eun-Sun as well now. Now it needs to wait, until Miss Hawley has spoken with the third Sherpa climber, who was on Kangchenjunga with Miss Oh in spring 2009, Pema Tshering. It's a pity, but one of the two other Sherpa climbers, must have lied, either Dawa Wangchuk, who said, they were on top, or Nurbu, who said, they were only near the Rappel area, which is quite far from the top.

Mingma summited 8000er Nr. 13
Monday, 16 August 2010 12:21

On August 5th, Mingma Sherpa summited Gasherbrum I with the Korean expedition. It was his 13th Main-8000er, he only needs Kangchenjunga to be the first Nepali, who climbed all the 14. He also is the first Nepali, who climbed all five Pakistani 8000ers! Also his brother Chhang Dawa summited, it was his seventh Main 8000er already. The tables are updated, please find them in the download section!


Also the Brazilian born American lady climber Cleo Weidlich summited the same day!

Tragedy on K2
Friday, 06 August 2010 10:31

Sad news from K2: No luck again for Gerlinde Kaltenbrunner! When she attempted the top of K2 this morning with Swedish companion Fredrik Ericsson, he tragically fell to his death.

This is again a sad loss for the climbing community. Fredrik climbed Shisha Pangma Central-Peak in 2004 and Gasherbrum II in 2005. He was only 35 years old.

Our deepest condolences go to his family and friends.
