News : Kilian Jornet is already in Nepal for his ‘secret’ expedition to Everest
We already explained a few days ago that Kilian Jornet was preparing an attack on Everest for this spring, but there was no official notification on when it would be. Really Nor has he himself yet given details of what the expedition will be like, but both TV3 and ‘L’Esportiu’ confirmed that the Catalan mountaineer plans one of the toughest challenges he has ever embarked on: it seems that what he will try is to climb Everest without oxygen, but this time to do it on his way more difficult, the west ridge and the Hornbein corridor and then the Lhotse crossing (8,516 m).
Mystery in Kathmandu
As we mentioned, he has not yet officially given details of the challenge, just a photograph with a message posted by Chhang Dawa Sherpa, the director of the Seven Summits Trekk agency. And it is that the athlete residing in Norway is already in Nepal and in the next few hours he will travel to Everest Base Camp. “Good luck brother Kilian Jornet, nice to meet you”, writes the Sherpa from Kathmandu accompanied by, for many, the best mountaineer of all time.
Jornet has also posted a photo with a message this Friday with his fellow fatigue David Goettler. “A simple idea with a high chance of failure perfectly sums up what we want to do in the Khumbu region,” says Kilian. We are dying to know more and to follow this latest madness.
