KATHMANDU, NEPAL – In a remarkable feat of mountaineering prowess, Australian climber Allie Pepper has successfully ascended Mt. Annapurna, the world’s 10th highest peak, without the aid of supplemental oxygen. This marks a significant milestone in her ambitious goal to summit all 14 of the world’s 8,000-meter peaks without additional oxygen support.

Pepper, 48, hails from the Blue Mountains in Sydney and is on a mission to complete this challenge within three years. She reached Annapurna’s summit at approximately 12:05 PM Sunday, accompanied by her climbing partners, Mingtemba (Mikel) Sherpa and Ngima Wanadak Sherpa. Expedition organizers, Seven Summit Treks, confirmed the successful ascent.

The ascent of Mt. Annapurna is Pepper’s third conquered peak since embarking on her project in July 2023. Her previous victories include Broad Peak in Pakistan and Mt. Manaslu. She now has 11 peaks remaining to reach her goal by July 2025.

Pepper’s next challenge will be Mt. Makalu. If successful in her mission, she will become one of a select few to have climbed all 14 of the world’s 8,000-meter peaks without supplemental oxygen. Currently, only two men have achieved this, a feat that took them 16 years. Pepper’s project is titled “The Respect Above the Clouds 14 Peaks No O2.”
