McKINLEY is proud to announce that on September 25, 2013, Team McKINLEY athlete Markus Amon reached the summit of Manaslu. While Amon was part of the Clearskies Ski Expedition, he managed to successfully speed solo the planet’s eighth highest mountain in a total time of less than 12 hours, including the ascent from Camp 2 (6,600 m) to the summit (8,163 m) and the descent back to basecamp (4,900 m) on skis. The beautiful “Mountain of Spirit” in the Nepalese Himalayas is known as one of the more risky 8,000ers to climb. Amon and the Clearskies Expedition team were equipped with brand new products from McKINLEY’s ReD collection, available Spring/Summer 2014.
