Keep 8000ers.com alive

€1,250 of €5,500 goal

Raised by 26 people in 4 months
Ten Years of 8000ers.com, the workload increasing every year, hundreds of thank you messages, but almost no financial support. Money is needed for relaunching and updating the website and just to survive. Every sponsored mountaineer, every expedition company, every online or printed mountaineering magazine and every alpine association would be able to benefit from the work of 8000ers.com. All contributions - however small - would mean a lot to me as it would give me courage to continue my work, which I have started more than 37 years ago. Thank you in advance for all your help!

Hello, mountaineers, expedition companies, mountaineering website runners and all other mountain lovers. After one month there is still only half of the sum which is needed to renew my website collected, but now after the season many are now back home and hopefully will support my passionate work.
It seems that most people know only about my work on the 8000ers chronicles and statistics. This is a whole lot of work itself and includes hundreds of special tables, but during my decades of mountain research I also listed mountain tables including my proposed separating system “Elevation Equality”.
With the help of most recent maps and also several restricted map copies and the available DEM data I compiled geographic tables of whole High Asia and the Andes, also very detailed lists including Nepal, the Karakorum, the “Alps of Tibet” and also many low mountain areas.
I’d like to post all updates and already finished tables to my website, but it really needs more support from all of you.
Also there are now several stories about the true summits of Dhaulagiri I, Annapurna I and Manaslu and their summiteers plus some other controversial stories on historical ascents ready to publish.
Now please donate as much as you can and also please find sponsors for our future work.
Thank you in advance and hopefully I will be able to continue with all your kind help!

Below 10 % so far only? Thank you to all who donated, but there must be more mountaineering friends around. After many years of working alone, we are now a team, Rodolphe Popier, Tobias Pantel, Thaneswar Guragai, Bob Schelfhout Aubertijn and some others who are interested to help with (already prepared) content, but first the website need an update itself and so it's necessary to collect money to continue. Please donate, all you interested mountaineers, expedition companies and also official Alpine Clubs. I worked, because it's my passion, but I also worked for all you, including journalists and mountaineering blog editors, just help to keep my website and fact researching alive. Thank you in advance!
