March 16, 2023: Kristin Harila and Adriana Brownlee are two mountain climbers attempting to summit all 14 eight-thousanders in record time. Kristin has already summited 12 of the 14 peaks in just 147 days, and she aims to break Nirmal Purja’s record of summiting all 14 peaks in just six months and six days. Kristin’s goal is to complete the climb without the use of bottled oxygen, which would make her the second woman in history to achieve the feat.
Kristin Harila and Adriana Brownlee have reached the base camp of Mt. Manaslu (8,163 meters) for the second time to climb Manaslu, accompanied by a Nepali mountain guide. The team arrived at the base camp on Monday and received permission from the tourism department to climb Mt. Manaslu during the spring season.
Kristin and Adriana have set themselves the ambitious goal of climbing 14 mountains higher than 8,000 meters and so far, they have climbed an impressive 12 of them. The duo is now looking to add Cho Oyu and Sisapangma to their list of summits, which they believe will be easier compared to their previous climbs.
However, they were unsuccessful in their previous attempt. Nonetheless, Kristin’s climbing record is nothing short of impressive, having already climbed 12 of the 14 mountains higher than 8,000 meters. Her achievement puts her in the elite group of mountaineers who have accomplished this feat.
Adriana, on the other hand, is still in the running to become the youngest person to climb all 14 mountains. She has climbed 10 of the 14 mountains so far and has her sights set on the remaining four. Her determination and skill have impressed many in the mountaineering community, and she is already considered one of the most promising young climbers in the world.
Mountaineering is a physically and mentally demanding sport, requiring a high degree of skill, strength, and endurance. Climbing mountains above 8,000 meters is even more challenging, with high altitude, extreme weather conditions, and other factors increasing the risks and difficulty level of the climb. Despite these challenges, Kristin and Adriana have persevered and achieved remarkable feats, inspiring others in the mountaineering community and beyond.
The climb of Mt. Manaslu will undoubtedly be a challenging one, but with their experience, skill, and determination, Kristin and Adriana are well-equipped to handle the challenge. Their climb will be closely watched by the mountaineering community, who will no doubt be eager to hear updates on their progress and achievements. We wish them the best of luck in their endeavor and look forward to hearing about their success.
