Norwegian Kristin Harila on Wednesday started her record attempt to scale the world's 14 highest peaks in less than six months. She started her race exactly where she had to give up last year due to a lack of permits: on Shishapangma.
Norway's Kristin Harila came close to beating Nirmal Purja's record time for climbing all 14 eight-thousanders. Only two peaks were missing. However, since the Chinese authorities refused her permits for Cho Oyu and Shishapangma, her record hunt is over at this point.
The Norwegian Kristin Harila has set herself the goal of climbing all 14 eight-thousanders in the world within one season. She has already climbed eleven peaks, the last three are scheduled for this autumn. If she can complete her plan before November 3rd, she would beat Nirmal Purja's record time.
