Unclimbed Lunag Ri

The outstanding David Lama teams up with American legend Conrad Anker with a return to Lunag Ri, an unclimbed mountain in the Nepali Himalaya. The duo came tantalisingly close in their first attempt,  but despite that expedition ending in failure, the two consider another crack at the mountain the following year.

Returning to the mountain to finish the project confronts the climbers with difficult decisions; Anker struggles with his own health problems, while Lama tackles the mountain solo in a nail-biting encounter.

With the full movie Lunag Ri having been released online, this outstanding video from Red Bull Media takes us as close as you would want to in attempting to summit this unclimbed mountain.
