Panzeri says Kangchenjunga is harder than K2

Mario Panzeri has recently climbed Kangchenjunga, his 12th 8000m mountain. He climbed it with an Iranian and Christian Stangl.

A climber who was with him on the expedition – and made the summit too – Anselm  Murphy, made some interesting comments about what Panzeri and Mingma Sherpa said about the difficulties of Kangchenjunga. Both of them said that Kangchenjunga was harder to climb that K2.

Panzeri said that he would be going to Gasherbrum 1 in the summer. If he completes this it will be his 13th 8000m mountain. He has previously climbed K2.

With him on the final climb to the summit was Christian Stangl. He said that he did not ask him about the faked K2 climb last year. But for this climb he has pictures to proves that Stangl made the top. He thinks Stangl might be going back to K2 this year.
