Ascents of 2008

In 2008, there were 57 grand ascents and firsts, registered over 21 countries, involving 120 alpinists of 20 different nationalities.

Based on this exhaustive list, the jury selected the six ascents which they deemed to be the most significant.

It should be noted that in respecting the wishes of R. Garibotti and C. Haley, who did not wish to participate in the Piolets d’Or, their achievement on the Cerro Torre was not considered for nomination by the jury.

The grade of difficulty presented, is that announced by the alpinists who have climbed the routes.
