Video: A Double-Summit of Everest and Lhotse

Last week, while climbing in the Himalaya, alpinists Steve Plain and Jon Gupta nabbed a double-summit of both Everest and Lhotse, and in the process Plain set a speed record for completing the Seven Summits. Along the way, they also filmed their adventure, which you can see highlights of in the clip below. The Everest-Lhotse double is becoming more popular with top mountaineers and you’ll get a better understanding of what that entails thanks to this video.
