Lunag Ri – David Lama and Conrad Anker Walk the LineBy Rock and Ice | July 30th, 2018
Already in 2016, David Lama and Conrad Anker had set out to climb Lunag Ri, a stunningly beautiful, unclimbed peak of 6,907 meters on the border between Nepal and Tibet. Things didn’t go as planned: the duo had to retreat just shy of the summit.
They returned the better part of a year later, in November 2016, determined to bring the project to an end. Despite prime conditions and all the knowledge gathered during their first attempt, their endeavor was stopped rapidly with Anker dangling between life and death, leaving Lama with some tough decisions to make.
