HAPPENING NOW! The Clearskies Expedition Team has reached and built up basecamp (4,930m) below the towering 8,163m peak of Manaslu.
The first ascents to Camp 1 and 2 were successful. Our team already installed Camp 1 (5,620m) and Camp 2 (6,650m) after a 3-day break on the mountain due to good altitude acclimatization.
Stay tuned to find out if they will make a successful ascent of Manaslu!
Director: Hannes Kuenkel, Nils Peuse
Athletes: Hannes Groebner, Markus Amon, Georg Leithner, Sepp Hechenberger
