Hi !

I wonder what is the general consensus about this climber.
Why are many of his climbs under suspicion? (The first ascent of the south face of Lhotse, that he claims he achieved SOLO, being the major example).
Personally, i like to beleive in any climber's words, unless there is a concrete proof of the opposite. But for this climber in particular, there seems to exist a great controversy...

In others words, is TOMO CESEN

one of the GREATEST HIMALAYAN CLIMBER EVER

or a LIER???

If we start making people give documented evidence of every route just to get credit, whats to keep people from calling all soloists liars? I know of no credible evidence that proves Tomo Cesen to be a liar. For my money he belongs among the Himalayan greats like Rienhold Messner, Silvo Karo, and Janz Jelik
