Can you hear the power dropping off as he climbs higher and higher, the motor sounds very different at the end, at the top your lungs burn just walking around, so imagine how it affects the motor.

For interest, if you check the mountain as he climbs, you will see a clear tree line, above which no trees grow, this isn't forestry or fires or anything like that, the winter permafrost doesn't warm up enough above that altitude to allow trees to grow.

Well many would not necessarily have realised as the thread was on the 790 and you indicated this as "better sound and footage" ... Doh!
