Hopes fade for Himalayas climber 9-Jun-2007 At 12:08:57 PM ghost
Aaaaaannnddrreeewww Lllloooccckkkk uupppdddaaattteeee ....................

On May 24, Ecuadorian Ivan Vallejo and Australian Andrew Lock summited Annapurna, their 13th and 12th 8,000er respectively. It was been a risky bet: The guys climbed the summit in spite of the route’s dangerous conditions. On the contrary, Spaniard Iñaki Ochoa chose to retreat from the joint summit push while snow blindness forced Serguey Bogomolov to turn back. Otherwise, the two of them would have equaled Vallejo in the ranking.

In any case, Ivan Vallejo won’t get done with the 14x8000ers quest this summer: He still needs to summit Dhaulagiri, not attainable during the monsoon season. It’s also unclear whether he had plans to attempt it this fall or wait till next year. As for Andrew, he wished he had more luck on Shisha Pangma, as he attempted to summit the mountain right before Annapurna, but failed to top-out. Now in order to complete his mission he’ll have to return to the Tibetan peak and Makalu.
