Oh Eun-Sun cancels Annapurna summit bid

Oh Eun-Sun has canceled her latest attempt of Annapurna. Apparently the winds were too strong for an attempt of the summit. There were reported winds of 100km/h. She and her companions had set off for the top on Sunday.

She plans to try again in the spring of 2010. If she make it to the top she will be the first woman to climb all 14 8000m mountains. The other 2 women – Gerlinde Kaltenbrunner and Edurne Pasaban – who have climbed 12 of these mountains are not expected to have tried the 2 they need by this time. She reached the summit of K2 in 2007 with oxygen.
