Koreans Alpinists determination is well known, so ladies are. During the last months, we followed the successfull ascents of Oh Eun Sun climbing 11 x 8000ers in the never declarared battle to be the first woman to climb all the 14 highests peaks of the planet. She’s now directed to Nanga Parbat.

About "style"there are different interpretations, but the korean is not very "light" and "alpine" as they can rely on the help of big teams and supplementary oxygen.
