Kristin Harila is a Norwegian mountaineer who in 2023 broke the True Summit World Record conquering the 14 highest mountains in the world in a staggering 92 days, smashing the previous record by three months.


Joining Kristin is the Sherpa who climbed every step with her, Tenjen ‘Lama’ Sherpa.


Together they discuss the decision they took to continue their ascent of K2 after encountering another climber in trouble, why a family tragedy didn’t stop Lama from getting the job done and how, even in 2023, women still struggle to find suitable high altitude clothing.
