Lying Climber… Another One

It was reported yesterday that Austrian climber Christian Stangl is correcting his earlier story.  He claimed that he was the only mountaineer to top out on K2 this season.  Stangle recently confessed that he only reached about 27,200 ft./8,290 m. up the mountain.  Stangl says he lied because of sponsor pressure. 

Earlier this summer, Korean climber Oh Eun-Sun lied to the climbing community to claim that she was the first woman to reach the world’s 14 meter peaks (see the post Peak Baggers’ Integrity and its link for more informtain.)
