Multiple ascents of Everest are ongoing, but also additional ascents of Kangchenjunga and Lhotse are reported!

Everest: Arun Treks reported per email, that Indian climber Gaurav Sharma from the state Rajastan (a first!), accompanied by the Sherpa climbers Lhakpa Rangdu (his fifth Everest ascent!) and newcomer Pemba Sherpa summited Everest at 6h45 Nepal time this morning!

Lhotse: The IMG Lhotse expedition was successful this morning! Sherpa climber Chewang Lendu summited again with clients Gregory Vernovage (USA) and Philippe Robin Arslanian (France). Also 15 climbers of IMG summited Everest today!

Kangchenjunga: Adventure Consultants reported per email, that Keith Kerr with Sherpa climbers Lhakpa Dorje, Namgyal and Tendi summited Kangchenjunga.

According to email conversation also Go Mi-Sun summited Kangchenjunga and after Oh Eun-Sun with ten Main-8000ers so far she has now nine of them under her belt. Miss Go will probably join Miss Oh on Dhaulagiri I now. The Korean ladies are really very fast, hopefully all will go well!

More details soon!
