Mammut #PROJECT360 - Mount Everest
Ultimate Heights: Mammuts' #project360 conquers top of the world - Mount Everest. Mount Everest is by its altitude of 8.848 metres the highest point and by that very fact the most famous mountain on earth. Its ascent history and particularly its first ascent via the Southern climbing route are representing milestones of alpinism.
A new milestone in virtual mountaineering was celebrated, as the two Nepalese mountain guides Lakpa Sherpa and Pemba Rinji Sherpa became first in the world to document the whole South route to the summit of Mount Everest with a 360° camera rig for Mammut’s #project360.
The four Sherpas climbed from Basecamp at 5.380 meters of altitude to the summit at 8.848 meters, passing all iconic route highlights: through the unpredictable, constantly moving Khumbu Icefall, the Western Cwm that is notorious for its changeable weather conditions, up through the steep, icy Lhotse Face, reaching the summit by passing the technical cruxes of Yellow Band, Geneva Spur and the infamous Hillary Step.
