Conrad Anker and David Lama attempt to summit the unclimbed peak of Lunag Ri (6,907 meters) on the border of Nepal and Tibet. They were
the first expedition to reach the headwall, but were turned back due to cold temperatures and strong wind.

“Had we reached the summit, our climb would have been perfect,” says Lama. “In turn, we still have our fingers. They will surely be useful on our next
attempt, which we have set our sights on for next year.”
