The first summit successes of the spring climbing season on the eight-thousanders in Nepal and Tibet are reported from Annapurna I. According to The Himalayan Times newspaper, about 20 members from teams of the commercial operators Imagine Nepal, Seven Summit Treks and Elite Exped reached the highest point at 8,091 meters today – almost all probably with bottled oxygen. A Sherpa team had secured the route to the summit with fixed ropes.

Among those who stood today on the tenth highest summit on earth located in western Nepal was, according to media reports, the Pakistani climber Sajid Ali Sadpara. The 24-year-old son of the legendary late Muhammad Ali Sadpara, who died in 2021 during a winter attempt on K2, climbed without bottled oxygen, according to his own statements.

Sajid has set himself the goal of scaling all 14 eight-thousanders without breathing mask. Annapurna I was his fifth eight-thousander after K2, Gasherbrum I, Gasherbrum II and Manaslu.

Update 16 April: Again on this Sunday more than a dozen summit successes were reported from Annapurna I.
