8,848 METRES, 3 CLIMBERS, NO OXYGEN EQUIPMENT.

Mount Everest with its height of 8848 meters is the earth’s tallest mountain and with just over 6000 ascents so far also the most climbed eight-thousand Meter high peak.

Markus Amon, Noemi Beuret and Georg Leithner (members of the McKINLEY Team) will climb the Mount Everest along the southeast ridge from Nepal side. The climbing of the Mount Everest itself will take place in the comparatively short time of only 4 weeks in alpine style. Several camps will be set up on the mountain for the purpose of altitude acclimatization. This short time span is only possible due to the extended acclimatization during the approach.

CHALLENGE
The team will neither use artificial oxygen nor Sherpa porter support but will climb the mountain „by fair means“. In this respect, summiting in extreme altitude distinguishes the members of the Everest Expedition from participants of other expeditions who do use oxygen bottles and support from numerous Sherpa high-altitude porters.

ESTIMATED TIMING
Expedition start and departure from Europe: 4th April 2017
Expected summit climbing: between 10th and 25th May 2017
Expected end and return to Europe:7th June 2017
