    Awesome! Love the sounds, too, though I wish it was possible to zoom it in and climb a wee bit slower. Thanks for posting!

    I hope Im not the only one who thought that that looked really easy! Few pints on ya and you'd be up the top in no time!

    Really interesting to see as I've read a bit about it.

    It looks easy all right but it's the altitude and extreme conditions that make it difficult. :)

    I once climbed the Reek after a hard frost, reminds me of that.

    Everest is a cakewalk compared to K2 or Annapurna.
    For every 4 that reaches the top K2, 1 dies
    and Annapurna has the highest death toll compared to successful accents

    Misread thread title as Mt. Everest Accent and was wondering what it would sound like. :(

    High-pitched and sort of breathless.
