Safety will always be our number one priority. The environments we operate in demand it. Your welfare and wellbeing form the foundations of our planning and decision-making throughout any expedition.
Controlling the controllable
Your safety on the mountain begins well before you reach basecamp. In the planning phase of any expedition we build infrastructure that allows us to be completely self-sufficient: if it’s controllable we control it. This is key to attaining and maintaining our industry-leading strategy for success and safety.
We are capable of setting up our own fixed lines (with a proven track record on all 14 of the 8,000m peaks) and have backups to cover all scenarios, from secondary oxygen supplies through to the ability and experience to operate our own rescue missions if the situation arises. Our self-sufficient approach maximises our options, agility and responsiveness, while eliminating the uncertainty that comes when relying on other teams to achieve your objective.
