In his bid to climb the fourteen Eight-Thousanders, Spanish mountaineer Edurne Pasaban ended 2009 with twelve completed climbs under his belt; he planned to scale the remaining two, Shisha Pangma and Annapurna, in spring 2010. At the beginning of March, after a series of mishaps and misunderstandings over permits with the Chinese government, the team of Al filo de lo imposible, an exploration and adventure programme on Spain’s TVE channel, follows him for two weeks on the north face of Annapurna, from the setting up of Camps 3 and 4 to the summit, which he reached on 17 April. His achievement gave new impetus to an already outstanding mountaineering career.
