In this episode, Chris Kalman narrates “Less Rich Without You," a
story by Nick Bullock that was first published in Alpinist 68 (Winter 2019-20). The story
chronicles Bullock's attempt to climb a new route on Minya Konka, a
7556-meter peak in Sichuan Province, China, in 2018. At age 52, on
his twenty-fourth expedition, he and Paul Ramsden make their way
through the hazardous maze of an icefall amid heavy mist and
falling snow—and through the allures and pitfalls of a modern
professional climbing life.
Narrated by Chris Kalman.
