According to previous statistics, there were over forty people on all 8 meters. The latest research shows that many of them were on the wrong peaks. Is it the biggest mistake in alpine history?
The BETA news show is presented by Bächli Bergsport and Mammut
Officially, 44 people were at the top, from mountaineering legend Reinhold Messner to shooting star Nirmal Purja. But now the German chronicler Eberhard Jurgalski came.
The New York Times published his meticulous research in mid-May - with a surprising conclusion.
Actiontalk TV investigates the matter in the latest episode of the show BETA.
Has never been a person on all 8 meters?
Do you want to be the first to stand on all the right 8 meters?
So if no one has ever been on the right 8-meter peaks, then you can be the first. If you are looking for the necessary footwear for your preparations, then Bächli Bergsport recommends you Nordwand 6000 High mountain boot by Mammut.
The Nordwand 6000 High is a high-performance mountain shoe with a removable inner shoe and an outer shoe with elastic gaiter. This is closed using the waterproof zipper and thanks to the knitted sock construction it has a close-fitting finish.
The shoe has a wide protective rubber edge that protects the outer material from abrasion from rock and ice. The removable inner shoe is closed with a dual-zone Boa Fit System, which ensures an optimal hold and a good fit.
The high-quality Vibram sole, which can be easily resoled again, and the shape of the sole construction, which allows the mounting of a crampon with heel lever and front bar, make the North Face 6000 High a reliable companion for ice climbing, at full speed and for expedition mountaineering up to 6 meters above sea level.
