Thirteen has proven an unlucky number for Carlos Soria. With 12 of the world’s 14 8,000m peaks already accomplished, only Dhaulagiri and Shishapangma remain to complete the set. Dhaulagiri, in particular, has stubbornly resisted the Spanish mountaineer’s advances. This week, Soria returns to Dhaulagiri (8,167m) for a staggering 10th time.
