Video: Shishapangma South Face Expedition – Arrival in the Khumbu

This past spring climbing season, alpinists Hervé Barmasse and David Göttler traveled to Shishapangma to attempt a new route along its tough South Face. Now that the season is over, The North Face is sharing videos from the expedition, telling the story of this impressive climb. The first of those videos can be found below, giving us a glimpse of the training and acclimatization that the two men went through before ever leaving for the mountain. I’ll follow up with more of these videos as they are released.
