Ueli Steck and crew set off on another expedition this week. This time, fully equipped with gear that will allow them to update us weekly from the side of Mt. Everest!
“The Goal is to climb Everest (8,848m), the highest mountain in the world. While the normal Everest route is fixed each year for numerous commercial expeditions, Simone and Ueli will find their own challenge on the mountain. Their exact line will be decided while they acclimatize, and their decision will be based on conditions both on the mountain and within. There are so many factors that dictate the optimal route, the team can only make the key decision of what to climb when on the mountain itself, gauging fitness, weather and snow conditions.”
This Expedition is Powered by Goal Zero’s Sherpa 50 Solar Recharger The lightweight solar recharger will allow Ueli to update us from the highest mountain in the world as he is standing on it himself.
