Teamwork, Flow, and Peak Performance on K2


A few weeks ago, a team of Nepali climbers made history, summiting K2 for the first time in winter, a feat that represents mountaineering’s last crowned jewel. In this episode of the Growth Equation podcast, Brad and Steve delve into how the impossible was made possible. In particular, they focus on the role of teamwork, pride, and purpose in a sport that is often very individualistic and egocentric. They then zoom out of climbing to discuss the fascinating science behind the principles that took these Nepali climbers to the top of the world, and they explore how these same principles can help all of us climb the metaphorical mountains in our own lives.

(In the show, we mentioned a video of the last 10 meters of the ascent. Here it is!)
