Climber summits world’s 14 highest peaks in 189 days

A Nepalese man has climbed all 14 of the world’s 8,000-metre-high mountains in a record-breaking 189 days. Nirmal ’Nims’ Purja, who served with British special forces as a Gurkha from Nepal, completed the final climb to the summit of Shishapangma at 8.58 am local time on Tuesday. Purja began the challenge, nicknamed Bremont Project Possible, when he reached the top of Annapurna on 23 April.

Gurkhas are the scariest, friendly little fuckers in the whole wide world.
