History was made on Februray the 4th, 2011- The first ever Winter ascent over 8000m in Karakorum. Reaching the summit is half the battle when your climbing into the heavens. Think about reaching your ultimate goal and then having to go all the way back down. For me, heading back to base camp would be much harder to do…. Check out this amazing video of the way back down. The North Face had a hand in this and visit this link to see more about the incredible expeditions ski trips and other adventures they sponsor. The way up to the summit can be seen here.
