This past spring, First Ascent climbing guides Dave Morton and Melissa Arnot made an attempt on Makalu, the fifth highest mountain in the world at 8481 meters (27,825 ft). While their bid for the summit ultimately fell short, this video captures their experiences on the mountain quite nicely, and makes for a great end of the week post. Enjoy!
