Nanga Parbat interview

K2 Mountain

Most heroes don’t get flashy magazine spreads
Folks ExWeb spoke to who tried 8000ers in winter say they can’t even explain how rough the death zone is on a fragile human in the deep of winter. It’s hard, they say. Really hard. 

 A few international individuals are giving it a go right now, attempting a first winter summit on Nanga Parbat. Waiting for news yesterday we did a shoutout for Ian Overton’s funny debrief on Cracked.

 Today we chat with Ian about writing in general (his piece generated a big audience on Cracked) and Nanga Parbat winter climbing in particular. “Trying to explain simply being cold as hell is not enough,” he said.
