North Korea's Kim Jong Un Climbed a Mountain, State Media Says

The North Korean leader was seen atop a 9,000-foot peak in his latest feat.

But his latest feat puts all those to shame.

Kim climbed to the top of the country’s highest mountain at dawn Saturday, according to a report from the country’s strictly controlled, state-run media.

A series of still photographs released by a state broadcaster Sunday appear to show Kim atop 9,022-foot Mt. Paektu, standing in the snow and smiling as the sun rises above him. He was also pictured with North Korean soldiers and pilots.

“Climbing Mt. Paektu provides precious mental pabulum more powerful than any kind of nuclear weapon,” the state media report said.
