There are only 14 mountains in the world over 8,000 meters/26,500 feet. Of these, Everest is the highest, K2 is the hardest, but Annapurna is widely considered the most dangerous. For every four climbers that attempt Annapurna, one dies trying.

It begs the question: who in their right mind would try to climb such a mountain? The answer is Don Bowie, FRCGS. Don took 13 years, six expeditions, and the loss of many friends along the way, to spend seven minutes on the summit of Annapurna. And he did it without supplemental oxygen- the first Canadian to accomplish this.
