Video: Shishapangma South Face – The Door to Base Camp

Yesterday I brought you the first in a series of videos from The North Face that take us along with alpinists Hervé Barmasse and David Göttler as they attempt a climb up the very tough South Face of Shishapangma in the Himalaya. In the first clip we saw their training and preparation in the Khumbu Valley, but with that complete they’re now off to Base Camp to start the expedition itself.

In this video, you’ll get a sense of the logistics that go into a project like this one, and some amazing views of the mountains in Nepal and Tibet.
