Japanese Mountaineer had climbed the Japanese Mountain Manaslu at the first
time, independently without oxygen and got success to ski down putting his
life on stake.
For the Japanese, it is the first record and there is one Japanese young man
who got success in summiting Manaslu (8163 m) on 12th October 2008.
His name is
KURIKI (26 yrs.). He is a young mountaineer targeting to summit 7 highest
mountains to climb independently (without oxygen).
He went to Manaslu Basecamp on 19th September and acclimatized
himself and on 28th September, he departed from the Base camp.
Attractively, he got succeed to summit the Manaslu
at 9:45 on 12th October independently without oxygen even though he
was worrying about the danger of avalanche and jet stream. Then after, from
the top he skied down to C4 at the altitude of 7400 m.
Manaslu is very deeply intimated mountain to Japanese people because it was
first climbed by Japanese Mountaineering Association Team in 1956. It has been
a big news for Japan because young Japanese had got success to summit without
oxygen and ski down from the top of the mountain which is historically related
KURIKI is targeting to climb the
independently without oxygen in next year spring, which will be the first
record from any Japanese. As well as he wants to do Ski from Everest if the
situation would be better.
onwards, I want to watch this young alpinist Mr. Nobukazu Kuriki.
