Project updates

Into the impossible
once more

Nimsdai is proud to announce his bid for a K2 Winter 2020/21 ascent to claim one of the last remaining grand prizes in mountaineering, a feat regarded by so many, for so long as impossible.

The greatest, the hardest, the last.

There are countless reasons why K2 still remains the only 8000m peak unclimbed during the winter season. Even in the most favourable summer climbing conditions K2 quickly gained the reputation as ‘Savage Mountain’ which has clearly contributed to the mountain’s strong allure for generations of mountaineers.

Winter brings with it a whole different level of danger and challenge. Numerous teams have attempted since 1987/88, but all have fallen short. Not only do the sheerness of the slopes and overall exposure create a technically challenging climb, weather is always the great opponent on K2 all year round. Summit winds reach hurricane force, still-air temperatures are well below -65 degrees and the winter’s low barometric pressure means even less oxygen – so the margins of error are almost non-existent, the smallest mistake can have catastrophic consequences.

There are many reasons why K2 winter remains unclaimed; but only one team best placed to achieve this last great mountaineering challenge.

Strength / Leadership / Commitment / Integrity / Positivity are all values required for achieving the impossible and these lay at the heart of Nimsdai’s values and the wider team. They are values that have proven themselves to be the recipe for success time and time again delivering a 100% success rate on 8000m projects. Right now, we believe no team is better placed to achieve this final monumental mountaineering challenge.

And you can
be a part of it!

Partnerships are being invited to benefit from this extraordinary global interest feat.
