    "Namga Parbat and K2 are the two 8000 m peaks that have never been climbed – there are a total of 14 8000 m peaks in the world."

    You might want to find a fact-checker, because this statement is wrong.

    Looks like the missing words are "in winter". But yeah, glaringly wrong the way it's written.

    Yes, I messed that up and left "in the winter" out…was this what you were referring to? I found that there are 14 8000m peaks and K2 and Nanga Parbat are the two that have never been climbed in the winter.

    Eric, maybe Ryan is looking for a new writer and fact-checker. Who proofread this?

    I wrote it and proofread it…yeah I definitely missed a few things this time. Is the info about the 8000m peaks still wrong or has it been corrected?

    Eric- it's correct.

    Bob- Give him a break. This isn't the New York Times.

    It's not even the Bozeman Bulletin.
