Video: Conrad Anker and David Lama Walk the Line on Lunag Ri in Nepal

Back in 2016, Conrad Anker and David Lama traveled to Nepal to attempt a first ascent of Lunag Ri, a 6907-meter (22,660-ft) peak in the Himalaya. That expedition didn’t go exactly as planned however, and the two men were forced to abort their expedition just below the summit. In 2017, they returned once again and things took an even more unexpected and dramatic turn, leaving Lama to have to make choices that he didn’t know he’d have to face. This video takes us along on both of those expeditions, giving us an inside look as these two men face some of the biggest challenges of their life, both on and off the mountain.
