It was reported, that Makalu was ascended on April, 24rd by Iranian climber Azim Gheichisaz (his 11th 8000er), Nepalese Sherpa climber Lhakpa Dendi (his third time on Makalu), Chinese climber Yang Chun-Feng (also his 11th 8000er) and probably by another Chinese climber Liu Xiang-Yang (he was at about 8500 m on Everest last year). The latter sadly died by a fall on descent. Our condolences go to his family and friends.
