Video: Climbing K2 with Adrian Ballinger (Part 2)

Last week we shared a video that featured an interview with alpine guide Adrian Ballinger, and now he’s back for the second part of that chat.

Last summer, which seems like a lifetime ago at this point, Ballinger summited K2 without bottled oxygen, which was the main subject of the first clip. This time out, he delves into the debate over climbing with or without oxygen, how COVID-19 is impacting the mountaineering world, and so much more.

It is a candid look at the current state of alpine climbing, which is all-but shut down at the moment.
