2 veteran climbers in 7th heaven after toughest-ever feat
David Lim and Rozani scale their seventh virgin peak in their toughest-ever feat
For five nights last month, two climbers slept shoulder-to-shoulder in a tiny tent with a floor no larger than the size of a single-superior bed.
Mr David Lim and Mr Mohammed Rozani Maarof lived, ate and cooked in that small space; and each time they needed a few litres of water, they melted hard snow on a gas stove for an hour. All this, on the tough trek up a virgin peak in China that the Internet had no photographs of a month ago.
On Sept 23, the pair became the first to reach the top of the 6,016m mountain, and they named it Sangay Ri - Lion Peak, in Tibetan - in honour of Singapore. It is traditional for climbers of virgin peaks - which have never been summitted before - to name them and register the names with the local authorities.
The weather for the two weeks they were in Qinghai province's Tanggula Shan range was between about 5 deg C and minus 15 deg C, with mostly snow underfoot.
