On April 12, the first Ukrainian woman, Iryna Galai, climbed Everest. She conquered Annapurna (height 8,091 meters) – one of the most dangerous mountains in the world.

The death rate of climbers on Annapurna Mountain for all years of climbing is 22%. That is why she is considered a dangerous eight-thousander. This is written by the Champion publication.

Ukrainian Iryna Galai managed to climb the dangerous mountain together with the Nepali guide Mingma. This climb was the first ascent by a woman since the start of the full-scale invasion.

I have a flag with me with the Arm Women Now logo on it. I took this flag, because Annapurna is a female mountain. Difficult and serious, it is considered the most dangerous mountain in the world. She has a character similar to that of a Ukrainian military woman. Who will never allow herself unnecessary people, will not allow herself to be easily conquered and destroys everyone who approaches with bad intentions, the woman said.

Iryna spent the first months of the great war in the ranks of TRO, she defended our country from enemies . Therefore, the woman dedicated the trip to Annapurna to the Armed Forces and 60 thousand women who protect Ukraine.

Currently, more than 60,000 women serve in the Armed Forces, which is an impressive number even for NATO. These women are my heroes. I am fascinated by their bravery, beauty, courage and character. They are incredible! I dedicate this ascent to them and to my country, which is currently fighting for its existence, Galai shared.

Iryna is currently descending the mountain with a guide. The woman became the first Ukrainian woman to climb the eight-thousander this season.

Due to the extreme difficulty of climbing, K2 is also called the Wild Mountain, and in the world of mountaineers – the killer mountain. The mortality rate when climbing K2 is a record 23%. That is, every fourth climber's ascent to the mountain ended in tragedy.
