South-Korean mountaineer Kim Hong-bin has already climbed 12 of 14 highest mountains. He scaled Annapurna this spring. He lost all his fingers during a climb of the West Buttress of Mt Denali in 1991.
This summer Kim Hong-bin is attempting to climb Gasherbrum-I along with three Sherpas.
This incredible climber scaled Mt Everest in 2007 and completed the Seven Summits Challenge by climbing Mt Vinson in Antarctica in 2009. He summited Mt Lhotse and Nanga Parbat last year.
Now he needs to scale Gasherbrum and Broad Peak to complete all 14 mountains above 8,000 m.
Let's wish him good luck and perfect weather.
