What is Bremont Project Possible?
Bremont stepped up to be the title sponsor of ‘Bremont Project Possible’, the extreme mountaineering feat that Bremont ambassador Nims Purja has embarked on.
There are only 14 mountains on earth higher than 8,000m – the ‘death zone’ – and they are all located in the Himalayas. Bremont Project Possible is an extraordinary attempt by Nirmal Purja (Nims) to climb all 14 peaks in just 7 months.
The current world record for one individual climbing all 14 peaks is 7 years, 11 months and 14 days (held by Jerzy Kukuczka). Nims will complete the expedition with a rotating support team of Nepalese climbers.
Bremont has made this commitment to Nims as what he’s doing is not only truly remarkable but pushes the boundaries of human endeavour.
A Personal Act of Remembrance – Ama Dablam
Nims aims to summit Ama Dablam on the 11th November and to spend a few minutes thinking of not only fallen comrades but also those who still serve. Throughout his Bremont Project Possible Nims has had his annual Act of Remembrance planned.
Remembrance is a special time for the Armed Forces family – serving, former serving and their families.
It is many of the skills that he learned and developed within his career in the British Armed Forces that have served him well during his 6 months 6 days in the highest mountains on earth.
Nims will salute all those who serve but especially his brothers in the Brigade of Gurkhas and the British Special Forces.
As well as smashing his overall goal of scaling all 14 of the world’s 8,000m peaks in under 7 months, Nims has achieved a further six world records in the process:
1. Most 8000 meter mountains in the Spring season, climbing six
2. Most 8000 meter mountains in the Summer season, climbing five
3. Fastest summit of the three highest mountains in the world, Everest, K2 and Kanchenjunga
4. Fastest summit of the five highest mountains in the World, Everest, K2, Kanchenjunga, Lhotse and Makalu
5. Fastest lower 8000ers, Gasherbrum 1, 2 and Broad Peak
6. Fastest higher 8000ers, consecutive summits of Everest, Lhotse and Makalu in 48hours (Beats his own previous record of 5 days)
