EverestNews.com, just letting you know for your
website that I summitted Manaslu at 10.30am on
21 April, that being the first Australian ascent
of Manaslu. I reached the top with Sven and Jon
Gorgdal from Norway together with their
Sherpas Dawa Tshering and Kilo. Their ascent was
the first Norwegian ascent so a double first for
us. We had a very cold day with strong winds but
were lucky (and very happy) to get the summit so
early in the season. I'm in Kathmandu now about
to head for Lhotse...
attempted Manaslu with with Trajce Aleksov, (ex
hardman from Yugoslavia (Macedonia actually)).
Andrew's plan is to then to attempt Lhotse by
himself for a solo ascent of the peak. For more
on Andrew see here.
