Ivan Vallejo is Ecuadorian

I think there's a small mistake (maybe a big one, since I'm Ecuadorian.).. :D.

Actually Ivan Vallejo was born in Ambato, Ecuador and not in the Basque Country, Spain.

He is the 7th climber out of 10 in the World to climb all 14 8000 metter peaks without supplemental oxigen.

Nice to see Ivan here in SummitPost, though! :D.
