Renan Ozturk and Cedar Wright arrived in Pakistan's Karakoram Range and began acclimatizing for their ultimate goal: an alpine-style sprint up the 2,500-foot Western Cat's Ear Spire, a spike appended to Hainabrakk Mountain and the last unclimbed spire in the Great Trango Group, topping out at roughly 19,000 feet.

Their route, which they named the Epica Direct, followed a spiraling path and had them nearly calling it quits when they hit an overhanging 5.11-grade pitch near the summit.
