00:28 After four accidents in one week, one of which was fatal, Chamonix's town hall called a halt to wingsuitering. Two Chamonix locs - wingsuit pilot Roch Malnuit and paraglider pilot Sean Potts - state their views on the decision. 16:04 On 15 July, after 13 days of difficult climbing on the 13-kilometer Mazeno Ridge, Sandy Allan and Rick Allen stood on the summit of the world's 9th highest mountain, Nanga Parbat. Soon after that, the team ran out of food and water and were faced with a critical descent down Nanga Parbat's notoriously difficult Diamir Face. Sandy Allan tells the story in this short excerpt from the full interview.
