First summit news today came from Romanian Horia Colibasanu (check a previous story published earlier today).

Further summit news and updates on the climbers safe arrival back to C4 are expected soon.

  2. Oh Eun Sun of South Korea is lots like Chad Kellogg of USA. Not just frauds. Creative deceivers frauds. Horrible! They invent excuses, take fraud-summit-photos showing No Summit, crop their images to remove SUB-SUMMIT-LAND. Chad Kellogg has gone and done more. Lied about speedclimbs! Caught big time.

    Worse yet with this Chad Kellogg Fraud He has dozens of friends in the NW USA who criminal-Cyberstalk on the internet with malicious abuse stalking people especially anyone who criticizes him. The sewer of humans. But it just reflects back on Chad. That he has friends like this. Sewer.
