Video: Climbing Annapurna Spring 2015
Alexander Barber spent the spring climbing season on Annapurna in Nepal, attempting a solo summit without the use of supplemental oxygen. He was able to reach as high as 7000 meters (22,965 ft) before the April 25 earthquake changed everything. This video chronicles his early efforts to climb that very difficult mountain, and his experiences with assisting in the rebuilding and recovery process following the disaster. This is a personal account of a lost climbing season in the Himalaya, and the aftermath of a devastating earthquake.
