climbing Legend Norbert Joos
summits Lhotse for his 12th 8000 meter peak.
Joos summited Lhotse, Saturday, May 15th. He is very happy about his 12th 8000
meter peak. In 2005 he plans to get number 13! Mt. Everest! He is on the way
back to Kathmandu and he will spend few days in Malaysia with his partner
Renata. We congratulate "Noppa" Joos and wish him all the best for the next
expedition. But first, he plans to organize a trekking to Tilicho in autumn
