Horia Colibășanu Returns to Manaslu, for a New Route

Romanian-born Horia Colibășanu, atop of seven 8,000-meter summits so far, leaves for Nepal on March 26. He will team up with Peter Hamor (Slovakia) in an attempt to open a new route on Manaslu (8,163m), Northside, a press release says.

He will not use supplementary oxygen or high-altitude Sherpa.

Colibășanu successfully climbed Manaslu in 2006, with Spaniard Iňaki Ochoa de Olza (1967-2008) as rope partner.

The mountains Colibășanu climbed include K2 (8,611m), Annapurna (8,091) and Dhaulagiri (8,167m), three of the world’s most dangerous eight-thousanders.

Five out of his seven successful summits were firsts for his home country.
