#OUREVEREST

Together we’ve shared a dream for five years and, being who we are, we have arrived. Now we’ve returned to the highest peak without knowing what will happen. All I know is this isn’t my Everest, it’s our Everest. 


Share your dreams with the hashtag #OurEverest and follow the expedition in the social networks



In 2012, Kilian Jornet started Summits of My Life, a personal project in which he dreamt of setting ascent and descent records for the most important mountains on the planet. 


He wasn’t sure he would find it, but he was searching for happiness. Now, 5 years later, Jornet is ready to reach the last step of his challenge on Mount Everest.

Establish a speed record on the North Face of Everest without oxygen and using light gear.


This is the latest summit in Kilian Jornet's personal project "Summits of My Life".


There’s no evidence that any expedition has attempted this challenge in this way.


THE PROJECT

THE ROUTE

North Side of the Everest 


Route: Rongbuk monastery (5,000m) to Everest summit (8,848m) through the Norton or Holbeirn couloir.


Kilian Jornet’s expeditions are based on the same principles:


  • Minimalism: no oxygen, no fixed ropes, no assistance.
  • Light gear: easy to carry and that allows Kilian to move fast in the mountains.
  • Respect for nature and its conditions
  • Small team: Kilian Jornet + cameraman Sébastien Montaz-Rosset

SUMMITS OF MY LIFE MOVIES

DÉJAME VIVIR

After having to cancel their Everest expedition following the catastrophic earthquake that hit the country, Kilian Jornet and his team decide to continue with their trip where they will witness first hand how the force of nature can turn executioner for a valley and its inhabitants.
