 Top Women Stats on 8000 Meter Peaks   Last Updated 6/20/01

Wanda Rutkiewicz (8 Summits): A Polish climber whom most consider to be the greatest woman climber ever. Wanda was born in 1943 in Plungiany (before II World War it was part of Poland, now Lithuania). She had 8 8000 meter summits before she died on Kangchenjunga somewhere over 8000 meters while attempting by the southwest face route. Kangchenjunga would have been her ninth. 

Wanda's Summits: Everest 10/16/78, The third woman ascent, the first European on the top; Nanga Parbat 7/15/85, with Krystyna Palmowska and Anna Czerwinska. They became the first women's team who scaled this peak. (The first woman on Nanga Parbat was one year earlier - Liliane Barrard with her husband Maurice). K2 6/23/86, The first ever woman ascent to the top. She waited on the top for Michel Parmentier (France, died on Everest in1988) and the couple: Maurice and Liliane Barrard (France, both died during descent from the top of K2). Shishapangma 9/18/87 with Ryszard Warecki. Gasherbrum II 7/12/89 with Rhony Lampard from Great Britain. Gasherbrum I (Hidden Peak) 7/16/90 with Ewa Panejko-Pankiewicz. Cho Oyu 9/26/91 solo.

After dozen hours of climbing in a deep snow Carlos reached the top. He went down and met Wanda around 8200-8300 meters on the way down.
