As we all know, Yuji Hirayama is one of the biggest climbers all over the world. Making hard ascents as Kryptonite, (5.14d) (Yugi claims 5.14c), and the famous onsight of Mortal Kombat 5.14a/b, he is probabably the best climber from Asia. My question is:

There are other big (and recognized) climbers from Asia? Who?
Their names, routes, ascents, climbing style, profile...

I would like know about them.. Thanks

Tenzing Norgay Sherpa. One of the first two people to climb everest. Probabaly not what you were looking for, but he should be remembered.

May I inquire as to why you need to know who the "best" are? As there are far too many variables to say who is best.

What sort of climbing are you going for?
