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.
Kristin Harila has climbed her 14th eight-thousander with Cho Oyu in Tibet. With a time of one year and five days, the Norwegian is currently the fastest woman on the highest mountains in the world. Depending on the interpretation, she even beats record holder Nirmal Purja.
Norwegian Kristin Harila on Wednesday started her record attempt to scale the world's 14 highest peaks in less than six months. She started her race exactly where she had to give up last year due to a lack of permits: on Shishapangma.
The Norwegian Kristin Harila has set herself the goal of climbing all 14 eight-thousanders in the world within one season. She has already climbed eleven peaks, the last three are scheduled for this autumn. If she can complete her plan before November 3rd, she would beat Nirmal Purja's record time.
The Norwegian Mari Augusta Salvesen flashes the offwidth route Belly Full of Bad Berries (8a). An unbelievable achievement considering that Adam Ondra, the world's best climber of his time, struggled in this crack line in 2018.
