Speed Record on Everest!

Climber Christian Stangl has set a new record for summiting Everest, reaching the peak in just 16 hours, 42 minutes, and then another 6 hours returning to Advanced Base Camp. Stangl did this without the use of supplemental oxygen as well, making it all the more impressive. MountEverest.net has an interview posted in which Stangl discusses the climb, passing a struggling climber who may have been Lincoln Hall, and where he got the idea to do a speed climb.

Congrats to Christian! What an impressive accomplishment.
