The quest to climb Hkakabo Razi in the remote area of northern Myanmar was conceived by Hilaree O'Neill and Mark Jenkins and their yearning for an "anti-Everest" expedition. In the fall of 2014, Hilaree O'Neill, the expedition leader, and Mark Jenkins, Cory Richards, Renan Ozturk, and Emily Harrington set out to climb this formidable peak and determine whether it is the highest peak in Southeast Asia by standing on top with a GPS. What followed was a demanding journey full of setbacks that would push these five climbers to their limits emotionally, physically, and mentally. Hear Hilaree O'Neill talk about this epic expedition and being taken to "the point of no return."
