Dream Wanderlust | May 16 , 2017
Slovak climbers Peter Hámor (52) and Michal Sabovčík (30) reached the summit of Dhaulagiri (8161 m) on May 15 without supplementary oxygen. Peter Hámor became 17th Climber in the world to completed all 14 eight-thousanders without supplementary oxygen. "We gave it! Pete's last and my first 8000. It was really hard, drinking a bottle of pines with beer is nothing compared to it. Still going to BC and seeing in Soulov!" - Michal Sabovčík (message from Facebook).
Hámor had planned to climbed Dhaulagiri in 2009 but that attempt failed because his co-climber Piotr Morawski of Poland died during the ascent.
Hámor’s project, called Himalayaadventure XXVII started on March 10 flying from Bratislava to Kathmandu in Nepal. The climbers reached basecamp at a height of 4,500 metres on April 13, however the weather was complecated they lost one tent at c2. The project will last until June 2, when the climbers will return to Slovakia.
