Australian woman climber Ellie Pepper, 48, who came to Nepal with the goal of climbing 14 mountains 8,000 meters high in the world, including Mount Everest, without supplemental (bottled) oxygen within the next two years, has climbed Annapurna (for the first time) on Sunday.

Mountaineer Ellie Pepper climbed Annapurna-1 without oxygen

According to Kathmandu-based Seven Summit Treks, which is managing her ascent, Ellie reached the summit of the world's 10th highest mountain Annapurna I (8 thousand 91 meters) at 12:07 on Sunday morning without bottled oxygen. Along with him, his assistant High Altitude Guide Mikel and Nima Sherpa also reached the peak.

With the slogan 'Respect the 14 peaks above the clouds without the aid of oxygen', Eli's fast-paced climbing campaign of 14 mountains above 8,000 meters, which started in 080, started with the ascent of Broad Peak in Pakistan and Manaslu Mountain in North Gorkha in August of the same year.

In this process, she climbed Annapurna (first) as the third mountain on Sunday as part of her campaign. Before going to climb Annapurna, she said in a press conference organized in Kathmandu that she would be able to climb all 14 mountains by July 2082. She is also the first Australian female climber to climb Broadpeak without oxygen. She first climbed the 8,000-meter mountain Chooyu in Tibet in 2007. At that time, without the help of supplemental oxygen, she climbed that mountain after spending 8 days.

After climbing Annapurna for two decades, Pepper is climbing Kanchenjunga in Taplejung and Makalu Himal in Sankhuwasabha this spring. Mingma Sherpa, president of Seven Summit Treks, the manager of Eli's climbing, said that so far only two climbers in the world have climbed all 14 highest mountains in the world without supplemental oxygen, spending more than a decade without oxygen. He said it was a challenge.

Growing up in Australia's largest mountain climbing area, the Blue Mountain region, Ellie has been helped by Nepali Sherpa guides to climb all 14 8,000-meter high mountains around the world.
