South Korean Woman Climbs 14 Highest Peaks: By reaching the summit of Annapurna in Nepal, Oh Eun-sun of South Korea has become the first woman to climb the 14 highest mountains in the world. Oh, 44, took 13 years to accomplish the task. She carried a photo of rival Ko Mi-young, a fellow South Korean who fell to her death last year descending Nanga Parbat.

I've seen photos of Everest where you can't get a sense of how deadly it is.

Looking at Nanga Parbat in the photo link, that thing is strictly ominous and badass.

No biggie. Kim Jong-Il could to it all in one day, walking backwards. And probably, by tomorrow, it will be announced that he did.
