Any 8.000m summit without O2 is an incredible success. Congrats Kevin!

Agreed. A very impressive accomplishment especially without oxygen and looks like is was done safely and without incident. I look forward to hearing more about it.

Wow! Made through the avalanche, summited sans Os - what a GREAT accomplishment!

I hereby ask if there is a pic of Kevin's I could annotate, hopefully it wouldn't be "Deja vu... man!" (<-Reference to my annotated Cho Oyu shot). A shot looking west from the summit of Manaslu would be a JOY to tackle! Actually, a shot looking east would be kewl, too! Seeing the BACK side of most of those peaks...

HUGE congrats on your success Kevin,

Big Lew
