Hilaree Nelson is celebrated as the first woman to summit Everest and its neighbor peak Lhotse in a single 24-hour period. A North Face Athlete named by Outside magazine as "One of the Most Adventurous Women in the World of Sports," Hilaree is not your average adventurer. In the fall of 2014, a National Geographic team set out on what they knew would be a harrowing journey to the summit of Burma's Hkakabo Razi to determine if it is indeed Southeast Asia's highest point. The force of conflicting personalities threatened to unravel the entire endeavor. In this National Geographic Live! presentation, leader Hilaree Nelson recounts the tough decisions she had to make to keep her team together, accompanied by photographer Cory Richards' dramatic stills and clips from Renan Ozturk's searing documentary, Down to Nothing.
