Ed Viesturs' route on Annapurna

Not sure how this site will turn out, but MSN Travel will be covering every aspect of Ed Viesturs‘ attempt on Annapurna without oxygen. Viesturs’ 20 year quest to be the first American to summit all 14 8,000 meter peaks without oxygen will be complete with success on Annapurna.

“We will combine coverage you won’t find anywhere else — like Viesturs’ climb — with fundamental tools the travel audience demands to create a one-stop shop for the travel connoisseur.”

To provide the “behind-the-scenes” component that is fast becoming the trademark of MSN Travel “First and Best” adventures, Bangs and his crew, including chief trek photographer Didrik Johnck and renowned Himalayan photographer Jimmy Chin, will be filming numerous dispatches from the area including stories about the culture and terrain, Viesturs’ 20-year journey to this point, and, of course, the climb itself.
