So, if you cannot understand that there is something in man which responds to the challenge of this mountain and goes out to meet it, that the struggle is the struggle of life itself upward and forever upward, then you won’t see why we go. What we get from this adventure is just sheer joy. And joy is, after all, the end of life. We do not live to eat and make money. We eat and make money to be able to enjoy life. That is what life means and what life is for.
- George Mallory  (1886-1924) before he died on Mount Everest in June 1924

Manaslu: in arrivo anche Nirmal Purja
Manaslu: in arrivo anche Nirmail Purja #manaslu #simonemoro #alextxikon #nirmalpurja #k2 #wintermanaslu #vinayakjaymalla
Manaslu. Simone Moro e Alex Txikon hanno trovato diversi ostacoli in questa invernale. Prima il meteo avverso e poi, come se non bastasse, un enorme crepaccio che sbarra la via da C1 a C2. Da qui la necessità di trovare un percorso alternativo per superare quota 6.200m. Un possibile passaggio potrebbe essere allestito con 400 metri di corde fisse da Txikon e gli sherpa oggi. Passando alla…

Winter K2 Summit Success. All Nepali Team First to the Top
Winter K2 Summit Success. All Nepali Team First to the Top
It has been over 20 years since the first climbers attempted K2 in winter. Since then, a host of expeditions have made the attempt, with no-one climbing above Camp 4 (7950 metres, 26,075 feet). With violent and changeable weather, high altitude and the need to endure incessant cold, the challenges are exponential compared to an ascent in the summer season. The Sherpas who were reported to be on…

Superlatives Abound as First Day of Winter Arrives for K2 Climbers
Superlatives Abound as First Day of Winter Arrives for K2 Climbers
As we roll into the true start of winter, K2 climbers are rapidly feeling the effects of the high mountains in the coldest season. Temperatures are just one indication, add in the need to acclimatize, the incessantly flapping tents and the occasional snow storm sweeping in, creating an even more hostile environment. K2. On a warm summer day. It won’t look or feel quite the same right now.…

Manaslu impossibile in stile alpino. I Sherpa rinunciano
Manaslu impossibile in stile alpino. I Sherpa rinunciano #manaslu #sherpa #tenji #vinayak #nirmalpurja #nepal
Manaslu. Vinayak Jay Malla e Tenji Sherpa sono guide alpine con grande esperienza sugli Ottomila. Anche loro, come Moro e Txikon, erano impegnati nel tentativo invernale del Manaslu che volevano tentare in stile alpino. Qualche giorno fa sembrava che anche le “leggende del K2” -con Nirmal Purja in testa- dovessero raggiungere i due sul Manaslu. Successivamente però, lo stesso Purja, ha…

Nims Purja confirms that he had planned to PARAGLIDE off K2 after making first-ever winter summit
Nims Purja confirms that he had planned to PARAGLIDE off K2 after making first-ever winter summit
Making the impossible possible is somewhat of an addiction for former British Special Forces soldier Nirmal ‘Nims’ Purja. In 2019, he smashed the world record for climbing the 14 highest mountains in just six months and six days and this January, he accomplished one of the greatest mountaineering feats by returning to K2 on the China-Pakistan border and scaling it in the depths of winter, with no…
