Dhaulagiri & top trumps

IMG_5145 - dhaulagiri from larjung

A photo I once took of Dhaulagiri is now on a German set of top trumps called “Mountains of the World”. Mountains get rated on the following: Höhe / Erstbesteigung / Schartenhöhe / Dominanz / Besteigungen / Todesrate = Height / first ascent/height of col / dominance (distance from other comparable mountains I think) / number of ascents / death rate. Something like this anyway.

Finally mountaineers’ pub debates over the difficulty of various mountains can now be settled in a civilised card game.
