    Norwegian woman in pursuit of ‘super peaks’ record

    ISLAMABAD (AFP) – A Norwegian woman remains on course to climb the world’s 14 “super peaks” in the shortest time ever, her Instagram account said, after she summitted Pakistan’s Broad Peak, the ninth mountain on her quest.

    Pakistan is home to five of the world’s 14 super peaks – those over 8,000 metres. Climbing them all is considered the ultimate achievement by mountaineers.

    Kristin Harila is taking on Nepali adventurer Nirmal Purja’s 2019 record of six months and six days for climbing all 14.
