Tengkangpoche’s movie by Tom Livingstone and Matt Glenn

A first ascent

In October 2021, British climbers Tom Livingstone and Matt Glenn made the first ascent of the North-East Pillar of Tengkangpoche (6,487 metres) in the Khumbu region of Nepal. Tom told us about it in our pages*, and the video of the feat in the route called Massive Attack has been released. It recounts the 7 days spent on the route, the moments of rest due to injury and bad weather conditions, the climbers’ impressions and the beautiful images on board.
