Oh Eun-sun summits GI, her 13th 8000er

“Miss Oh Eun-sun summited GI at 1:16 pm, local time today – she is currently on her way back to C3,” sponsor Black Yak just told ExWeb correspondent Kiu Dam Lee.

The South Korean lady climber has now just Annapurna left to complete the 14x8000ers list.

Miss Oh departed C3 (at 7,200m) at 01:15am,” Black Yak stated. “She topped out after 12 hours climbing without supplementary O2.” Eun-sun is expected back in BC tomorrow.

GI (Hidden Peak) is Miss Oh’s fourth 8000er summited only this year – after Kangchenjunga, Dhaulagiri and Nanga Parbat. On an amazingly fast progression, the South Korean climber is now on top of the female 14x8000ers race ranking, with only Annapurna to tick off the list. Austrian Gerlinde Kaltenbrunner, currently on a summit push on K2, might equal the score in a few hours though.
