Himalaya calling

Climbers from all over the globe are migrating to the planet’s highest peaks, some for new, bold route attempts. Himalaya is jumping.

Amazon wheelchairs tried alternative treatments in the jungle. Lisa Blair overtook Fedor around Antarctica but then lost her mast in violent waters. Barneo has kicked off the 2017 Arctic ice base season.

In Pakistan; an intriguing barefoot expedition. Live dispatches from Everest. China/Korea politics halt Lhotse South face plans. Plus: Lots of great stories and interviews in World News last week.
