For those who haven't been keeping up, Cory Richards and Esteban "Topo" Mena have been attempting to summit Mt. Everest via a brand-new route of their own devising: the Northeast Face. Unlike the vast majority of those attempting to climb the world's tallest peak, Cory and Topo carry all of their own gear, and avoid the majority of the mountain's fixed ropes.
Climbing Everest is a risky endeavor at the best of times, and Cory and Topo's untested route adds a major element of uncertainty to their attempt. Can the duo complete their first ascent of the new route? You'll have to watch to find out.
