It's hard enough to scale Mount Everest. It's even harder to reach its summit without an oxygen boost.
While 4,000 hikers have reached the top of the world's tallest mountain since 1953, fewer than 200 have accomplished that feat without supplemental oxygen.
That's what two professional hikers, explorer Adrian Ballinger and photojournalist Cory Richards, recently attempted.
"This was something I'd dreamt about since I was a kid," Ballinger told CNBC's "On The Money" in an interview.
Both survived. Yet only one made it to the top successfully.
Ballinger described the moment he knew he had to turn around. AT "1500 feet from the summit, [it] got dangerously cold," he said. Ballinger was "shivering uncontrollably," he added.
"There was no question in the decision. I had to turn around. I had to come down," said the explorer, who has reached the summit of Everest six times before (but each time with oxygen).
Difficult as Ballinger said that choice was for him, his hiking partner also described the moment Adrian turned around as the hardest point of his own journey.
"That put me in the position of being alone on the mountain, in the dark, in a storm," said Richards. "That's very scary."
The National Geographic photographer and professional mountaineer—who was on his first Everest climb—continued to the summit. However, he didn't stay long.
"I was there for three minutes, and then I was gone," Richards told CNBC. "The most striking thing for me is how little impact being on the summit actually had."
He added: "A whole lifetime of investment into climbing and thinking about this, and wanting to do this and then you're there and you're like, 'I'm scared and I want to leave.'"
"The whole is greater than the sum of its parts." Aristotle I posted a similar image to this about two weeks and talked to the points of team work. That was the impersonal view...this one is about partnership. I've spent the past two months with @adrianballinger on the North side of Everest. That time Passed with a blink. His overwhelming and genuine psych, his deep level of respect and understanding of personal nuance and needs, and his true desire to act as a singular partnership are cornerstones of his personality...which has been one of the greatest experiences of partnership I can point to. Yesterday, AB made the incredibly hard decision to turn around before the summit. In some ways, I think he wanted this even more than me. But he knew that to keep going was to endanger himself and others. He also knew that as a partnership, splitting up was the best thing to do. It was a paradoxical decision that at once splinters conventional ideas of partnership, and in that moment, cemented ours forever. I couldn't be more proud of him and the decisions he made with our Doctor, Monica. It's sad to turn around after months of effort. It's my job to know that and respect that. But I'd be remiss if I didn't voice the idea that this was always a team effort and @adrianballinger is the stronger half of that team. EverestNoFilter #liveyouradventure @eddiebauer
While they didn't take along oxygen, the two explorers took along Snapchat.
With the hashtag, #EverestNoFilter, thousands of followers could see their real time feed on Snapchat live as it was happening.
Ballinger said since Snapchat has to post right away, "It's instant and I just loved that, because I think people don't understand what it takes to climb Everest."
Both climbers agreed having that social media connection and feedback was motivating while scaling the mountain.
"Especially on summit day," Richards said. "I don't want to say the world's watching, but it kind of feels good to have people who have your back, and they're invested and they're excited."
Ballinger, a professional guide who founded Alpenglow Expeditions, said he "truly love[s] the human struggle that happens on Everest."
Ballinger leads 40-day Everest trips for experienced clients for $85,000. "It takes so much mental strength, I loved watching that."
While he fell just short of his goal this time, Ballinger told CNBC that he loved "finally finding that point of failure and being broken by the mountain. Of course, I'm dreaming of going back."
Without oxygen? "I'm certainly going to try," he added.
