Comments
Azim has claimed thirteen 8000m peaks so far; only Lhotse missing. He wants to repeat Everest without O2 to complete the set of 14x8000m without O2.

Note: Azim climbed Manaslu in autumn 2012, when several climbers didn't reach the 'true summit' of the mountain. Hence, as per historian Eberhard Jurgalski, Manaslu is still missing from his list.
