Members Who Amaze: Kristin Harila 

October 25, 2022

Kristin Harila is a former cross-country skier from Norway. She’s new to mountaineering but has already broken climbing records. In the spring of 2022, she summited six 8,000+ meter peaks in 29 days, breaking the speed record set three years ago by Nimral “Nims” Purja, a member of the Global Rescue Mountain Advisory Council. We caught up with Harila a few days before her trip to the Himalaya where she will attempt to summit the remaining three peaks by November 3rd to beat another record set by Nims.
