K2 today

Today an Austrian woman did something no other woman on Earth did before her: Gerlinde Kaltenbrunner completed her collection of 8000m mountain tops without supplementary oxygen. It was her 7th attempt at the K2 and today she finally made it up to the top. I am very impressed and feel really happy for her. Reinhold Messner from South Tyrol was the first men to do it - reaching every top above 8000m without supplementary oxygen.

Bravo Gerlinde!

Btw: if you never heard of Gerlinde before you must not be surprised, because not exactly the celebrity-type of woman.
