In 2017, Canadian Climber Louis Rousseau assembled a skilled international team to crack open a new alpine-style route on the North Face of Cho Oyu.

As we reported earlier, logistical issues forced them to change their destination at the last minute to the Northwest Face of Annapurna I. To put it mildly, not everything went smoothly there.

If you want to know what happened, settle in and enjoy the 15-minute film below.

You can read the recent ExWeb interview with Rousseau here.
