Short film explores a new method of 'express acclimatization' and pushing the human body to its limits.

Salomon athletes, Kilian Jornet and Emilie Forsberg have just released ‘Testing Ourselves’, a short film documenting their journey to the Himalayas, to attempt a climb of over 8,000 metres to the summit of Cho Oyu in just a fortnight.

Mountaineering medicine specialist, Dr. Daniel Brotons explains the scientific aspect of the acclimatization process and what it could mean for other climbers, while Jornet and Forsberg reflect on the more personal side of their experience. Their dynamic as a couple and how this affects the expedition is a key part of the narrative.

Could this new method revolutionize the way we climb?
