Title: Alan Hinkes - 14th 8000m peak?
Post by: MoT on Jun 10 2005, 00:26
It seems being the 13th person to reach the top of the 8000m peaks is causing problems for poor Alan Hinkes - his success on Cho Oyu was never credited because he climbed above the false summit for around an hour in a whiteout and gave his best guess as to where the summit was.

You can read about it in the tabloids (www.mounteverest.net)  ::)
