Video: View From The Top of Kangchenjunga

Posted on the 20 June 2011 by Kungfujedi @Kungfujedi
Exactly one month ago today, Christian Stangl, along with climbing partners Maro Panzeri, Sangay Sherpa, and Tunc Findik stood on the summit of Kangchenjunga, the third highest peak in the world at 8586 meters (28,169 feet). The video below captures that moment and gives us all a brief glimpse of what it is like to be on top of an 8000 meter peak.
While watching the video, keep in mind that Christian summetted without the use of supplemental oxygen. Listen to his breathing in the video, and you'll get an idea of how hard it is to accomplish that feat.
