Gerlinde Kaltenbrunner has climbed all fourteen main peaks in the eight thousand series as well as four summits higher than eight thousand meters. By reaching the summit of K2 (8,611m, the second highest peak in the world), she has become the first woman to scale all 8,000m peaks without the use of supplementary oxygen. Her passion, however, is not solely the high mountains of the Himalayas — it’s the people, culture, and religion that enchant her.
