What is Bremont Project Possible?
Bremont has stepped up to be title sponsor of ‘Bremont Project Possible’, the extreme mountaineering feat that Bremont ambassador Nims Purja has embarked on.
Having now summitted 7 of the world’s highest peaks in a matter of weeks, and with a further 7 to go, this significant funding comes at a critical time in the expedition when Nims might not have been able to continue due to lack of financial support. By ensuring phase two of ‘Bremont Project Possible’, Bremont hopes that the remaining, much more marginal, shortfall will be met for phase three as Nims continues to smash records and summit the world’s 14 highest peaks. Bremont has made this commitment to Nims as what he’s doing is not only truly remarkable but pushes the boundaries of human endeavour.
At the time of writing, the world record for climbing 7 of the world’s highest mountains, known as the 8000ers, has been completed and Nims has succeeded in the first phase of his ambition to speed climb the world’s 14 highest mountains in 7 months.
Who Is Nirmal Purja?
You may not have heard of Nims before – and there is a very good reason for that. He has spent the last 16 years serving in the UK military, 10 of which were in the secretive world of the UK’s Special Forces. However, in 2019 he is leaving the military and for the first time can tell the stories of an extraordinary career.
As a former special forces operator, Nims has made sacrifices on our behalf, giving up time with friends and family to go on multiple deployments. He has placed himself in harm’s way, defending the freedom we enjoy.
Nims is also an extraordinary mountaineer who, because of his physiology, training, mindset and sheer humanity, is capable of achieving things beyond even the most experienced climber.
