Dawa Steven on top of the Lhotse
May 23 2008
Dawa Steven Sherpa, half-Nepalee, half-Belgian, reached the summit of the Mount Lhotse (8516 m) this Wednesday 21th of March at 8h35. This was his third 8000.
He reached the summit of the Cho Oyu by its north face un Fall 2006 and the Mount Everest in Spring 2007. Not bad for 24 years old!
Steven also created the Eco Everest Expedition 2008, a research which studies the impact of global warming on the melting of the himalayian ice. More informations on http://www.nepal-expeditions.com/eco%20everest%202008.htm.

It has been quiet around Muriel Sarkany the last few months, but it was for a good reason. Last week, the 38-year-old Belgian sent Fish Eye, a very long 8c of 50m in Oliana, Spain.
Almost one year since his visit to Siurana, Nicolas Favresse sent the project he bolted last year in sector Campi Qui Pugui. Vacunamatata adds 10 ultra-technical meters to the 8c+ Chikane.
