Climber Faces Intense Backlash
Record-breaking Norwegian climber Kristin Harila and her team have faced a barrage of criticism for their actions.
Defending Her Atrocious Actions
Harila’s defense, shared on Instagram, did little to stop the abuse that kept coming her way.

Harila explained that her team attempted to help Hassan before making a difficult decision to move forward, believing he would receive medical attention without their interaction.
A Gruesome Tragedy
Basharat Hussein, a witness to the terrifying ordeal, condemned the climbers’ actions as beyond saddening, labelling them as “below humanity.”
A Tearful Admission
The incident, where the victim was left unaided after a fall, haunts Hussein as the “most dehumanising event he has ever witnessed.”
A Call for a Better Future
Hussein expressed hope that such an incident will never happen again, urging climbers to prioritise compassion over world records.
Climber’s React to Heartless Decision
Austrian climber Wilhelm Steindl, who cancelled his descent due to the weather and avalanche worries, criticised those who refused to assist Hassan calling the decision a “disgrace.”
Harila explained the difficulties her team faced in trying to rescue Hassan, arguing that it was too dangerous to save him anyway.
Harila claimed the narrow and steep path is what forced them to make tough decisions to ensure the safety of all.
