Sophie Denis, 30-year old French Born NY Section Member, summitted Broad Peak this weekend with a Field Touring Alpine Group.
This is after a delay of almost a week because of high winds and avalanche conditions. This is the third 8000 meter peak she has climbed this year, the others being Cho Oyu and Lhotse in Pre-Monsoon, all done speedily and in good form. She climbed Everest a couple of years ago.

Next on her agenda is K-2 which she expects to tackle in August.

Her goal is to do an unprecedented six 8000 meter peaks in a single calendar year.

Felicitations Sophie!
