Adam Bielecki and Felix Berg are doing it again: their “secondary” acclimatization peak (before attempting a new route on Annapurna) is a mighty challenge by itself. The grandeur of Langtang Lirung (7,227m) was equaled by the disbelief the climbers met when they revealed their plans to the locals in Langtang valley.
“The owner of our hotel promised that if we climb it, we can drink all the alcohol he has in his restaurant for free,” Adam said. In fact, the mountain’s bad reputation is no wonder. Not many dare to approach a peak that has not been summited in over 20 years. One of the latest attempts was Slovenian superstar Tomaz Humar on a solo climb up its north face back in 2009 – never to return.
