Video: How Adrian Ballinger and Emily Harrington Climbed Cho Oyu in Just 14 Days

Somehow I missed this video when it came out a few months back, but it’s still incredibly interesting and relevant now as the climbing season ramps up on the Himalaya. Last fall, Adrian Ballinger and Emily Harrington climbed Cho Oyu (8188 m/26,863 ft) in just two weeks thanks to some revolutionary training methods. This clip shares how they did it and takes us along on the expedition. It is fascinating stuff and a look at what could be the future of mountaineering.
