Tibetan – Standard route
If you want to climb an 8000m mountain without attempting suicide then your choices are Cho Oyu or Shishapangma (both climbed from Tibetan). Gasherbrum II is not as straight forward, I found, in 2007.
Cho Oyu, the sixth highest mountain on the planet, has the best success rate…..It is a technically straightforward climb with the best safety record for an 8000m mountain. And you don’t have to trek weeks merely to get to base camp, so logistically it is easy.
Experience and fitness
Despite the relatively non-technical nature you MUST have some mountaineering experience and MUST have been to 6000m before (Denali / Aconcagua / Island Peak, etc). You will need to climb on steep, near vertical ice for 25 metres and on a similar steep rock section, both with fixed ropes, traverse hard ice on a fixed rope and abseil down these sections several times. Don’t underestimate the difficulty and strength of will required to climb at over 7000m.
