Edurne Pasaban plans spring assault on last 2 8000m mountains

Edurne Pasaban has plans to climb the last two mountains she needs to complete all 14  8000m mountains. She plans first to climb Annapurna in the spring of 2010. Then she is considering climbing Shishapangma. She had recently made an  attempt on this mountain, but poor weather conditions prevented a serious attempt.

It seems as if it is heating up who will become the first woman to conquer all 14 8000m mountains. With Miss Oh Eun-Sun needing just Annapurna, and Gerlinde Kaltenbrunner needing the highest two to complete them all, it may depend upon the conditions as to who manages this feat first. All three women though have formidable mountains to climb first.
