Report: Humar Solos Annapurna South Face
By Dougald MacDonald from www.climbing.com
 
Tomaz Humar from Slovenia has reportedly soloed the legendary South Face of Annapurna. It is not yet known which route he followed, or if he climbed a new route. 
According to MountEverest.net, Ang Tshering Sherpa received a call from Humar by sat phone to say that he had successfully summited 8,091-meter Annapurna via the South Face on October 28. Ang Tshering is founder of Asian Trekking, Humar’s trekking agency in Nepal, and president of the Nepal Mountaineering Association. Ang Tshering sent a note to MountEverest.net with the details of the call. 

The South Face of Annapurna rises extremely steeply for nearly 10,000 vertical feet. In 1970, when a British team climbed the wall, it was the most difficult Himalayan wall climbed to date. Now there are four routes on the face. Last spring, the Swiss alpinist Ueli Steck attempted to solo a new route on the wall but was hit by rock fall shortly after starting and fell about 1,000 feet to the base, fortunately suffering only minor injuries. 

Humar is one of the most colorful figures in modern alpinism. He has had some extraordinary successes, including new routes on Ama Dablam, Aconcagua, Lobuche, Nuptse, and Dhaulagiri (solo, without a summit). He also has suffered some fiascoes, including severely injuring himself by falling into the cellar of the house he was building, and, in 2005, calling for a helicopter rescue from the Rupal Face of Nanga Parbat, which he was attempting to solo.

Date of Ascent: October 28, 2007 (summit)
