Do you really think that they could not make that final 1m (3ft) to reach the thru summit. Think logically before making such an affirmation.
I am sure they could have made it to the top, of course. But, it doesn't make a difference if you turn around 1, 12, or 300M from the top. If you do not stand on top, you have not summited. Exactly why Alpinist called it "Summitless FA in Annapurna Sanctuary." So yes, peak is still un-climbed, even if it was by choice.
