This way to the gold — a crew of Slovenians, including Marko Prezelj, heads toward Chomolhari (23,996 feet), near the Tibet/Bhutan border. Prezelj and fellow countryman Boris Lorencic’s first ascent of the peak’s striking Northwest Pillar (delineated by the sun/shadow line) earned them a 2006 Global Alpine Golden Piton and a Piolet d’Or.
