Manaslu, at 8163 meters, is the eighth
highest peak in the world. It is located in the west-central part of Nepal.
Update: Piotr Pustelnik has summited 11 of
the world's 14 highest peaks. If
he summits Manaslu, he will only have
Broad Peak and Annapurna left.
Yesterday, on the
17th of May, 14.00 Nepal time Piotr Pustelnik and Krzysztof Tarasewicz have
summited Manaslu. They started the summit push at night from camp IV at 7400m.
Dariusz Zaluski, Anna Czerwinska and Barbara Drousek, climbing after Piotr and
Krzysztof, were forced to turn back due to strong wind and bad weather
conditions. Now they are all back in camp IV.
