Simone Moro Announces his New Winter Project: Makalu
Few hours ago I announced my next winter project and here you can find all detail about my next expedition.
• The departure date will be in the Christmas days and the potential duration of the expedition will be 3 months ( respecting the role of the winter season /21 st December – 21 st march)
• First we will go in The Khumbu valley to trek and acclimatize and than we will go to Makalu Base Camp. I'm still thinking which route we will follow and this decision will be taken under the mountain in order to the condition of the face. I like the Kukuczka route but let's see how it is. Also the normal route is one of the oprion.
• No Sherpa, No oxygen and very limited use of eventual fix rope. So it will be a super light style expedition
• 21 st march will be the last potential day of our stay on the mountain
• Will be realized a FULL HD videos and Photos during all the climb
• Official sponsor will be THE NORTH FACE
• Nima Nuru Sherpa leader of Cho Oyu Trekking will be our local trekking agency and organizer
Makalu in Winter. History
Four people formed the next expedition led by Krzysztof Wielicki on 1998. Anna Czerwiсska, Ryszard Pawіowski and Ingrid Bayens from Belgium were with him. At the time Wielicki was among the best of Himalaists. His achievements included winter conquests of Mount Everest, Kanchenjunga and Lhotse, marking new routes from bases into the peaks of the Himalayan giants within 24 hours. He also got acquainted with the route of the first conquerors of Makalu leading through Makalu La.
"We aimed really high - said Wielicki - we thought that everything was possible, even a four-person winter attack of so vast and windy mountain. We chose the classic route through Makalu La, which appeared difficult due to its length. We got lost in a blizzard. In mid-January we had enough of it. This was however a great school of Himalaism. Every one of us stood at the top of the Everest".
On or about January 27, 2006 , the French mountaineer Jean-Christophe Lafaille disappeared on Makalu while trying to make the first winter ascent. Makalu is one of the harder eight-thousanders, and is considered one of the most difficult mountains in the world to climb. The mountain is notorious for its steep pitches and knife-edged ridges that are completely open to the elements. The final ascent of the summit pyramid involves technical rock climbing. Makalu is the only Nepalese 8,000 m peak which has yet to be climbed in true winter conditions.
The 3 rd February 2008 Kazakh climbers Denis Urubko, Serguey Samoilov and Eugeny Shutov, have been struggling to complete the first Winter ascent of Makalu, but the high winds and harsh weather, have continually turned them back.
