In August of 2016, Kilian Jornet went to Everest to make his first attempt on the mountain. The weather wasn’t exactly cooperative, leaving very small weather windows to acclimate and climb. So, he and his teammates had to make the best of the situation when they could, which included doing short day hikes and training runs. In the case of this video, we join them as they make their way up Changtsé, a 7500 meter (24,606 ft) sub-summit that connects to Everest via the North Col.
