Yep Cy, all his toes.

After climbing Bonete for acclimating Oiarzabal, Vallejo (8 8-thousanders), Martín Fiz (former runner), Fernando Escartín (ex-cyclist) and Chema Martínez (runner) have reached the summit of Aconcagua: <a href=//www.marca.com/elretomarca/aconcagua06/>Here.</a>

Oiarzabal seems to have some problems because the temperature is being cold and his stumps still are very sensitive. Even the wind is blowing strong. <a href=//www.marca.com/elretomarca/aconcagua06/experiencias/oiarzabal/>More.</a>

Looks like he's gonna try Yalung Kang in 2006.

I'm not sure this is such a good idea given some problems on Aconcagua. This guy's had more than a few close calls already, kind of feel he'd be well advised to retire, or at least ease up on the ultra high, dangerous peaks.

MrWasatch,

You may be true. He should think to retire. There is only a small problem about that....He's bask....and a hard one !

Without all his fingers now maybe he has to proof something...

Maybe John. You are right! Though I don't know if he is right trying that mountain in the short term

Kangchenjunga

Spanish Yalung Kang: Enough for Juanito


The Spanish team is expected to land in Kathmandu today. The team’s first goal is Yalung Kang, the west point of Kangchenjunga. Once on the top, the climbers will try to follow the summit ridge to the main summit, conditions permitting. Juan Oiarzabal, the expedition leader, has already declared he won’t be attempting the traverse. “My feet are not yet fully recovered. I feel pain and I am not sure how they will work once at altitude. From the top of Yalung Kang, I’ll go back down – after all, I’ve already summited Kangchenjunga, been there three times.”

“Moreover, I’d be surprised if I actually summit another 8000+ peak, after everything I’ve been through,” added the Basque climber who is still recovering after losing all his toes to frostbite on K2 in 2004.

I love very much the northern area of Pakistan, The Pakistani peoples are peaceful, Said Renowned Spanish Climber JUAN OIARZABAL URTEAGA,commonly known as Juanito Oiarzabal, Mr. Juan Oiarzabal was born in Vitoria-Gasteiz (Spain) on 30 March 1956.
50 year old Climber said that this time I am going to northern area of Pakistan just for trekking and Edurne Pasaban also will company with us in this trek.
We are also going to HUSHE where we operating an NGO under the title of SARABASTALL on humanitarian basis.
He said that 50% royalty discount will attract the climbers towards the mountains of Pakistan.
He is the sixth man to reach 14 summits of over eight thousand meters, but at the same time he is the fourth in reaching them without the use of artificial oxygen. He has now reached 21 summits of over eight thousand meters, the current world record. JUAN OIARZABAL URTEAGA has frostbite on K2 in 2004, he said that he will attempt Broad Peak in 2007 on the Golden Jubilee of said mountain.
