Looking for Challenges Beyond Mount Everest

NPR's Michele Norris talks with Michael Kennedy, former editor of Climbing magazine, about the 50th anniversary of the famous climb by Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay to the top of Mount Everest — and about the next great climbing challenge, now that people regularly reach the peak of the world's tallest mountain. Kennedy says that while Everest remains a great individual challenge to many climbers, there are a number of other mountains that are more technically difficult.
