Update 4/2002: "I got just back from Pumori where we did climbed it... it was a lot of fun and rewarding cause basically we were 3 climbers on it... the most difficult was the route finding and the route fixing and once we were only 3 persons... We did summit on the 6th April and for sure we had a lot of people looking from Everest base camp ... Now I'm heading for McKinley where I'm supposed to meet 3-4 us friends... Joao Garcia

All these climbs were made without the use of Sherpas nor bottled oxygen.
