14 Peaks: A Historic Quest to Summit the World’s Biggest Mountains in Record Time
Kristin Harila is a Norwegian mountaineer, skier, and outdoor athlete. In 2022, her record-breaking attempt to summit all 14 of the world’s 8000-meter peaks in six months was brought to a disappointing end as her team failed to obtain permits for the final two mountains in Chinese Tibet. Despite the setback, Kristin is more determined than ever this year to take on the record again set by Nirmal Purja in 2019.
In this episode, Kristin talks with Richard about her successes and failures during the 2022 attempt, her dramatic introduction to mountaineering – from altitude sickness on Kilimanjaro to taking on Everest for the first time – and reveals her personal superpower for enduring pain for extended periods during her climbs.
