Absolutely awesome. Nims is beyond incredible. Kanchenjunga in one push with a hangover is unimaginable.

I don't think you have to be into climbing to enjoy it.

I know that was then, but it could be again..

Saw it last night, unbelievable guy and his wife must have been in pieces for 14 months. Could have been an hour or more longer as it was a bit of a highlights show.

Everest, Lhotse and Makalu in 48 hours is ridiculous. He basically dragged that k2 season from total failure too.

I also didn't realise he took that amazing picture of the queue on Everest where the Hilary step use to be.

I didn't realize that either or that only only 3 out of 4 climbers that go up k2 manage to make it out alive.

The world's best climbers take years and years to climb k2 due to the fierce weather in the karakoram, unbelievable technical terrain, objective danger of the bottleneck, shoulder/serac and avalanche risk.

Ed Viesturs K2: Life and Death on the World's Most Dangerous Mountain is one of my favorite books. The detail of the Duke of Abruzzi's trips in the 1900's to the personal accounts of the 2008 disaster are so fascinating. The cover alone is ridiculous.

K2 is always The Beast, the toughest mountain, I think. Could have done with route descriptions/GFX for a bit of context, it was inevitably a list narratively, but Nims is indeed extraordinary and someone needs to do a history of Nepalese mountaineering. I would also recommend Torn, just won the Grand Prize at Kendal, and my ex-colleague Chris Terrill's film about Alison Hargreaves' family, The Last Mountain, still on Iplayer.

Darjeeling?

I used to get goose bumps each time in saw the Himalayas again on each visit. They're just stunning, all the way along the range.

Poll: Do you think Pert is key to all of this?

Halfway through this, Nim and his team are absolute machines. How he climbed Kanchenjunga with a hangover is beyond me. I can barely get off the sofa when I'm hungover.

I've also just finished watching 100ft Wave on Sky Documentaries, which is also a great watch of the Human body and spirit being pushed to its limits.

I've been lucky enough to visit the Himalayas on both the Tibetan and Nepali sides. I've trekked the Annapurna circuit and been to Everest base camp. I long to go back there. The scenery is breathtaking and the people are beautiful.
