Pasaban curtailed by bad weather on Annapurna

Edurne Pasaban had to curtail her attempt of Annapurna due to bad conditions on the weekend. The winds were much stronger than expected and she and her companions had to turn back. She did say though that the ropes had been fixed to C3 which is the most difficult sections of the climb.

However, there has been forecast lighter winds on Thursday and Friday and she may start off to the summit on these days. This will be pending the weather conditions.

She only needs to climb this and Shishapangma to climb all 8000m mountains. Oh Eun-Sun needs only to climb this mountain to be the first woman to make the summit of all 14 8000m mountains. Gerlinde Kaltenbrunner is hoping to climb Mt Everest this spring and then onto K2 to have climbed them all also. There should be word soon from her in Tibet.
