Another interesting 2012 fact is, that on May 19th at least 238 ascents (171 from the South and 67 from the North) were achieved on Everest.

Also China finally finished the 14 8000ers with Broad Peak. Earlier other Chinese/Tibetan climbers just stopped at the Rocky Foresummit.

Tatsuo Matsumoto is now the oldest climber, who summited Manaslu with 72 years and 263 days and Tamae Watanabe the oldest woman on Everest with 73 years and 180 days.

Brazilian born (with Portuguese and German parents) American lady climber Cleo Weidlich was the first woman who summited Annapurna I and Dhaulagiri I in the same season after 12 men.

All tables on all 8000ers are finally updated now but they will not be posted for several important reasons. If somebody is interested, please send an email with either a landline telephone number or a Skype identity and we will contact you.
