We conquered the Shark's Fin! American climbers become world's first to summit 20,700ft Himalayan peak after 11-day trek
  • Shark's Fin on India's Mount Meru is a near vertical climb for only the bravest of explorers
  • Dozens of professional climbers have been defeated by the lethal summit
  • Trio slept in hanging tents thousands of feet above the ground
Three American climbers have become the first in the world to conquer the Shark's Fin - a lethal 20,000ft pinnacle.

The dare-devil trio of Conrad Anker, Jimmy Chin and Renan Ozturk spent 11 days scaling up the jagged near vertical point on Meru Central in the Himalayas.

Dubbed one of the hardest climbs in the world, dozens of professional climbers had been defeated by the tricky summit - with one breaking both legs during an attempt. But the American climbers successfully negotiated the 20,700ft climb - sleeping in a hanging tent thousands of feet above the ground.
