(Montagna) “We managed to climb from 5900 m to 8024 m in a single push. Although we arrived just a few meters from the top, go fast and light on a huge wall was very satisfying and rewarding,” said Gottler/Barmasse according to sponsor The North Face.

Italian news agencies reported summit several hours before the North Face release, according to Montagna, who awaits a statement by Hervè for clarification of the result.

Editor’s note: On Shishapagma normal route a sharp ridge defines the crux of the climb. The altitude difference is merely meters but the ridge itself is long and very exposed.
