Hirotaka Takeuchi is an experienced Japanese high altitude climber, with currently 13 8000 peaks successfully behind him. Now facing this ultimate challenge, Hiro has joined with Kenro Nakajima, both are attacking Dhaulagiri, in alpine style without supplemental oxygen. Shortly, Hiro will summit his last 8000 and will become the first Japanese having accomplished this (Everest, K2 and Makalu with the use of supplementary oxygen).
