Adrian Ballinger recently returned from guiding in the¬†Himalaya¬†this fall: Manaslu (8,163m) and Ama Dablam (6,812m). Adrian will present his story and photos of establishing this season’s route up Manaslu, surviving epic 15′ storms, losing entire camps’ worth of gear, days-on-end in the tent, and frozen feet.
