Oh, Record-Setting!

Oh Eun-Sun, a 44-year old woman from Namwon, has become the first woman to climb all 14 peaks over 8,000 meters in the Himalayas.  She reached the summit of the 14th peak, Annapurna, on Monday after an avalanche on Sunday made climbing impossible.  One peak, Kangchenjunga, is currently under dispute, however, as a photo from the summit made it difficult to ascertain if she did reach the top.  However, it is recorded in the official Himalaya Database that she had climbed the mountain, so it counts toward her record.

Congratulations Oh Eun-Sun!
