Watch Insane High Altitude Climbers Take On The Perilous Lunag Ri

It may only go for two and a half minutes but that’s easily enough time to get your palms sweaty and your briefs into a serious bunch.

David Lama and Conrad Anker have teamed up with Red Bull to bring you stunning footage of the first ever expedition ascent of the Lunag Ri cliff face. The mountain layered in ice and snow stands at 6,907m and is located on the border of Nepal and Tibet.

In the POV footage you’ll see both Lama and Anker toiling through various vertical terrains of the untouched summit with a terrifying drop. The unfavourable weather prevented the pair from reaching the true summit but what they took away from the experience can only be commendable. Even if your balls of steel are frozen.
