The Chinese team that is attempting to summit
all 14 of the 800 meter peaks
attempted Makalu in Spring 2003 with the help of Sherpas from Nepal. The
expedition failed to summit Makalu in Autumn 1996. Last summer they attempted
K2 and failed along with the rest of the climbers. In 2001, they summited the
fore summit or rocky summit of Broad Peak, but apparently did not go to the
main summit. Therefore, they have 10 of the 14 with 4 to go....
