The Hazards Of High Altitude Climbing (Watch)

By

Conrad Anker was attempting to summit Luang Ri, a 22,000 foot mountain in the Himalayas for National Geographic’s ‘Edge of the Unknown, when him and his climbing partner David realized they made a serious mistake.

The mountain had never been summited before, and the pair had not allowed enough time to reach the summit and make it back down to their tent in the same day.

Continuing on would mean spending a night in the elements, turning back would mean they would have to push back their summit attempt another day.

Check out the clip below from ‘Edge of the Unknown’ below, and watch the full episode on Disney+.
