Norwegian woman smashes Nims Purja 14 Peaks Record
Kristin Harila and Tenjin Sherpa have etched their names into the annals of mountaineering history.
The Norwegian climber and her incredible Sherpa summited the 14 highest peaks on the planet in just 92 days, breaking Nirmal (Nims) Purja's record by over three months.
Kristin is a former professional cross country skier and Tanjin is a Nepalese mountaineer, who hails from a lineage of Sherpas known for their exceptional mountaineering expertise.
The incredible feat was solidified on July 27th at 10:45am Pakistan time when the pair reached the summit of K2 (28,251'), the World's second highest peak.
Only four days before, they stood atop neighboring Broad Peak (26,414'). Her expedition took her to some of the most treacherous and unforgiving terrains on Earth, including Mount Everest and Kangchenjunga.
Their journey to world record glory was far from smooth. Facing perilous weather conditions, altitude sickness, demanding technical challenges, and financial hardships to complete the goal, she demonstrated unwavering resilience and mental strength.
In a male-dominated field, Kristin's accomplishment shatters glass ceilings, inspires countless aspiring mountaineers, particularly women, and challenges societal norms. Her journey stands as a testament to the limitless possibilities of human determination.
