Harrington Acclimatizing With Great Views

Two Ascents, Both Seek Summit — Southeast Ridge Team to Focus on Education and Science; West Ridge Team of Anker and Cory Richards to Retrace Route of First American Ascent on West Ridge.

Climb to Be Covered Online Starting March 16 at natgeo.com/oneverest and www.thenorthface.com/everest. Real-time Updates from West Ridge Team to Start April 16 on National Geographic Magazine App for iPad

Via her Instagram Harrington said, “View of the West Face of Ama Dablam (6812m ~ 22,349ft) from the top of Nagarstang Peak (5038m ~ 16,625ft). The West Face is very technical and has only been climbed a few times, not near as often as the Normal Southwest Ridge route. Nice little #acclimatization hike today with Kaji Sherpa #OnEverest @natgeo @thenorthface”
