Video: Andrzej Bargiel’s Ski of Laila Peak

Andrzej Bargiel’s team has posted a brief but spectacular video from his and Jędrek Baranowski‘s ski descent of 6,096m Laila Peak. They also offered a few more details of the climb.


At 4:30 am local time yesterday, the pair struck out for the summit from their advance base camp. They climbed about 1,800m and reached the summit around 1 pm. They had to leave their skis 150m below the very top because of the difficult conditions, but they skied all the way back to Base Camp from there. The descent took two-and-a-half hours.
