Hello everestnews readers, I am
flying to Kathmandu in a couple of days and later driving to Tibet, China.
First stop - Shishapangma
(26,335ft / 8027m). I will be on the North West side of the mountain. About
the planned route of ascent… I have a couple of possible “variations” in my
mind, but will decide when I get there.
In addition, I have a
climbing permit for a second 8000er in the area… but that’s if all goes well
on Shishapangma. More details on the second part of my expedition, later.
Asian Trekking (P) Ltd will make arrangements for logistical support only.
That’s about it for now.
Later, Ray Yeritsian.
Ever wonder why few ever
climb from the Central Summit to the Main Summit of Shishapangma,
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
CONSTRUCTION: Inner: Slip lasted Outer: Board Lasted OUTER BOOT: Cordura®
upper lined with dual-density PE micro-cellular thermal insulating
closed cell foam and thermo-reflective aluminium facing/ Insulated
removable footbed/ Vibram® rubber rand
