In terms of stunningly beautiful and incredibly scary climbing footage, it doesn’t come much better than this video. In the clip we follow alpinist David Lama, Hansjörg Auer and Alex Blümel as they attempt the unclimbed southeast ridge on Annapurna III in Nepal. Along the way they encounter knife-edge ridges, deep snow, and spectacular views of the Himalayan peaks around them. A feature-length documentary of this expedition is now making the rounds at adventure film festivals as well.
