In 2009 IMG will return to with a few more members! IMG
Himalayan Director Eric Simonson, and a film team featuring IMG on Discovery
Channel’s popular Everest TV series, will join the great group of climbers and
trekkers already on board for IMG’s 2009 Everest expedition. Since 1991 IMG
has successfully supported 179 people from 14 countries to the summit of
Everest, and we are looking forward to another great season on Everest.The
planning and preparations are already well under way. Ang Jangbu reports from
Kathmandu that the first 3000kg of gear was sent last week by helicopter to
Shyangboche. The loads are now moving by yak toward Base Camp, where the
Sherpa team has already started building our camp. Stay tuned for more!
weather, high altitude double boot for extreme conditions The Olympus
Mons is the perfect choice for 8000-meter peaks. This super lightweight
double boot has a PE thermal insulating inner boot that is coupled with
a thermo-reflective outer boot with an integrated gaiter. We used a
super insulating lightweight PE outsole to keep the weight down and the
TPU midsole is excellent for crampon compatibility and stability on
steep terrain. WEIGHT: 39.86 oz • 1130 g LAST: Olympus Mons
