Update: Ochoa de Olza summits Shisha Pangma Main 

Iñaki Ochoa de Olza, from the Lorpen-Diario de Navarra expedition, has summited today (14.00 Nepal time) Shisha Pangma Main, 11 years after summiting his central summit. Not many details are known, but Inaki told his family that he thinks he opened alone a new route or repeated the Russian route in the final part of the ascent. He is descending to Base Camp and later more info about the ascent, because two days ago he explained that he will go in three days, arriving summit on Wednesday. He broke his plans and summited today. This is the 11th 8.000+ meters for  Ochoa de Olza, who has too two more ascents of Cho Oyu, Shisha central and foresummit of Broad peak. In April, he summited Manaslu with Jorge Egocheaga. Kangchenjunga, Dhaulagiri and Annapurna aren't still in Ochoa's bag.

Update: Inaki Ochoa de Olza, from the Lorpen-Diario de
Navarra expedition last week climbed to 7000 meters in the north route of Shisha Pangma. Iñaki and Bob Jen descended the same day to base camp (5.650 meters). Now is snowing in base camp and it seems that this situation will continue until the weekend. Iñaki wants to wait until the nest week to climb to the main summit by the traverse below the central summit

Earlier: Inaki Ochoa de Olza, from the Lorpen-Diario de Navarra expedition, has departed to climb Shisha Pangma (8.027 meters) by the north face-northeast ridge. With the north American Bob Jen, Ochoa de Olza, 39 years old and with 10 8.000+ meters in his bag, will arrive on September 10th to the Chinese base camp. Last spring, he summited Manaslu with asturian Jorge Egocheaga and now plans to climb a mountain that he knows very well. In 1995, he arrived to the central summit (8.008 meters) and in march of 2005 he suffered and avalanche when trying a true solo climb in this same route.
