Christian Kuntner bagged his lucky 13 on Lhotse Saturday. He now only has Annapurna to go, and that's where Piotr Pustelnik is right now. Piotr is making his final push for the summit from Camp 2 and going for his 13th 8,000er.

Right now there are three climbers with 13 of the 14 8,000ers: Ed Viesturs, Abele Blanc, and Fausto De Stefani.

Coming up from 11 recently are Alan Hinkes, who just made his 12th by summiting Dhaulagiri yesterday May 18th; Norbert Joos, who just made his 12th by summiting Lhotse on Saturday May 15th, and Sergei Bogomolov, who is on Annapurna right now making a push for the summit and his 12th 8,000er.

There are only eleven climbers who have all 14 of the worlds highest peaks above 8,000 meters.
