Very bad weather at the moment.
Inaki is in the advanced base camp (5.650).
Inaki Ochoa de Olza, is
attempting a "true solo" of
Shishapangma. A "true solo" being defined as summiting the
mountain on a route where no other climbers are climbing and you have no help
from others (which would be assumed). Our records show only 2 "true solos" of
8000 meter peaks using this definition; Messner on Everest and
Lafaille on Shishapangma
Others have climbed solo, but used Sherpas to set camps, or other help.
Inaki Ochoa de Olza, from the
Lorpen-Diario de Navarra expedition, has depart today from Pamplona to
Kathmandu. Ochoa de Olza, 37 years old and who has summited 9 8000+ (Cho Oyu
three times, GI, GII, Lhotse, Everest, Nanga Parbat, Broad Peak, Makalu and

conditions, by the north side. Inaki reached the central summit of Shisha
Pangma in 1995. His climbing permit ends at the end of March. After this, he
will go to Dhaulagiri with Italians Nives Meroi, Romano Benet and Luca Vuerich
and then to Annapurna with these same climbers along with American Ed
Viesturs and Finnish Veikka Gustafsson. Peter Guggemos will also be in the
