The world's eight-thousanders are seething. The reason for this is the record hunt by Norwegian Kristin Harila. She is trying to climb the 14 highest mountains in less than six months. Currently it even looks like after three months.
The program is presented by Bächli Bergsport and Petzl
Kristin Harila is criticized for their climbing style on the eight-thousanders. Last from Mingma Gyalje Sherpa. An exchange of blows ignited on social media, which prompted us to get to the bottom of the matter more closely.
We spoke to those who know the scene, including the mountaineer, journalist and Himalayan Database keeper Billi Bierling, as well as with the renowned Swiss expedition operator Kari Kobler. Of course, the person at the center of the criticism also has his say: Kristin Harila.
