Time is a valuable commodity. We are about to change the fundamentals of high-mountain expeditions. For you.
Acclimatization for this expedition is already done at home. While a traditional K2 expedition takes around two months, our Flash™ Expedition saves time and additionally increases safety and chances of success. (4 weeks)
Finally, our proven Flash™ style is also available for one of the most beautiful, difficult and prestigous mountains on earth. All while increasing safety and chances of success! One of our mountaineers could already climb K2 in Flash™ expedition style taking only 21 days from/to New York – without supplemental oxygen!
Thanks to our pre-acclimatization at home, we have spared ourselves multiple ascents and descents on the objectively dangerous and technically challenging K2. As soon as the weather is fine, we will start a direct summit attempt via the beautiful normal route on the southeast ridge (Abbruzzensporn). Sherpas and high altitude porters will accompany us and oxygen will be available for each participant. If we are successful, the absolute culmination of every mountaineer’s life awaits us!
We will fly in our proven and experienced Sherpas from Nepal, who will support our Pakistani high altitude porters and insure the route. This is an additional safety factor.
Info for K2
For the K2 you have to be a very experienced mountaineer with eight thousand meter experience. The Abbruzzensporn at K2 is the most difficult normal route on an eight-thousander. We recommend oxygen for the summit day at the latest (this is included in the price). This means that the statistically most accident-prone passage under the Hängeserac after the shoulder and the bottleneck can be climbed much faster and safer both on the ascent and the descent. The fixed ropes in the summit area are only laid during the ascent to the summit. If you want to ascend without oxygen, you can do so, as long as you can prove that you have the appropriate experience and skills.
