Manaslu, Ascent. Italian Sergio Martini on September 27 summited Manaslu, at 8,163 meters the world’s eighth highest mountain, via its standard northeast-face route, thereby gaining his twelfth 8000-meter summit. He now has just two more of these giants to “conquer,” Everest and Lhotse, and is only the seventh person ever to reach at least twelve 8,000-meter summits.
