Norwegian Kristin Harila and Nepalese mountain guide Tenjin Sherpa completed their eight-thousander collection yesterday with the summit of K2. It took them just three months and one day to climb the 14 highest mountains in the world.
The world's eight-thousanders are seething. The reason for this is the record hunt by Norwegian Kristin Harila. She is trying to climb the 14 highest mountains in less than six months. Currently it even looks like after three months.
Last year she came close to beating Nirmal Purja's 14x8000 record time. Now Kristin Harila wants to try again - and she goes one better: The Norwegian not only wants to climb all 14 eight-thousanders in the world within a year, she also wants to do it without artificial oxygen.
