Following a personal decision, I take a step back as #8000ersTeam Press Representative, until discussion about the future, the goals, the vision of the Research Team will come to shared conclusions and collective vote.The expectations and polemics weren't a good thing to cope, since press/some climbers seemed to look at the Team as a "badge" to use for their own personal business. Enquiries about the 8000ers Team must be submitted to official email you'll find on dear Eberhard website. This account remains only as personal place where I share mountaineering chronicles, writings and news.(ph Cordillera Blanca / from Alpinismo Mexico Fb group) #8000ers #karakorum #montagnamagicaweb #alpinestyle #alpinismo #alpinism #Himalaya #climbing ...

Elizabeth Hawley would have turned 99 years old today.I feel a deep respect and gratitude for the incredible work Miss Hawley did and that still continue, both with the The Himalayan Database friends, and with the 8000ers.com Research Team led by Eberhard Jurgalski, where I'm a (rookie) and proud member. We really feel a responsibility to keep and develop the values, the ethic and the fact checking statistics related to the climbs in high altitude. I would like to remember her with the words of Jim Herrington and his beatiful portrait of this lady. "Hawley was born in Chicago in 1923 and by 1960 had ended up in Kathmandu, Nepal working as a journalist for Time Magazine. She also did work with the Reuters News Agency, reporting on the 1963 American expedition to Mount Everest and eventually became Reuters’ mountaineering correspondent. She lived in Kathmandu ever since and through the decades had become the most respected, and sometimes feared, chronicler of Himalayan climbing. Hawley interviewed the majority of climbers who had done ascents of Nepali/Tibetan peaks since she arrived (she didn't bother with the western range, Pakistan/China). Parts historian, archivist, and librarian she was Authenticator Supreme and if you summited, and you wanted anyone to know about it, you’d want her to know about it.I was in Nepal in 2016 photographing two Sherpas for my climbing book but couldn’t pass up the opportunity to drop by and pay her a visit. I photographed her in Kathmandu, in the same apartment she had been living in for 57 years. Hawley died in 2018 at age 94."(Photo © Jim Herrington / The Climbers Book) #8000ers #karakorum #montagnamagicaweb #alpinestyle #alpinismo #alpinism #Himalaya #climbing #misshawley #himalayandatabase ...

*** EDIT: PHOTOS ARE FAKE, DEBUNKED BY ALPINEMAG :alpinemag.fr/fausse-panthere-neiges-photos-truquees-kittiya-pawlowskiWE GOT PRANKED! ***Kittiya Pawlowski , photographer, shared this incredible shot :"I backpacked 103 miles on foot to photograph one of the world’s most elusive animals—the snow leopard. Here are a few of my favorite shots.On a bitterly cold morning, I followed the icy rim of a gaping chasm, scoping out the Khumbu Valley with my Nikkor 500mm f/4 lens. At 18,000 feet (5486 meters) the weather was unpredictable. Within minutes one was alternatively freezing or roasting in the sunshine. This altitude is the limit of where snow leopards roam; however, to get the best view of the valley, I had to climb. Squinting through my camera’s telephoto lens, I noticed something in the shadow of Mount Pumori. At first, I thought it was a rock, but it was exactly what I was looking for."Check here for full story and other stunning photos of the Snow Leopard:kittiyapawlowski.com/snow-leopard-series(ph ©️ Kittiya Pawlowski ) #montagnamagicaweb #alpinestyle #alpinismo #alpinism #Himalaya #climbing #photography #kittiyapawlowski ...
