The French Antoine Gira and Damien Lacaz flew 1260 km in 19 days on paragliders, setting several records at once:

- Overflights of the high passes of Nanga Parbat
- a 150-kilometer flight over the Biafo and Hisper glaciers between Karimabad and Paju
- a 120-kilometer flight, including 60 kilometers over the Baltoro glacier
- a 248-kilometer flight - a record distance for Pakistan
- And most importantly: a flight over Broad Peak , 8051m. First!

On October 7, 2019, two hikers discovered human remains near the far side of the “Williamson Bowl”, above the sixth lake, in the Eastern Sierras. On October 16, H-80 was able to insert a Inyo County Sheriff's Office Investigator, and the remains were successfully transported to the Lone Pine Airport where custody was transferred to the Inyo County Coroner. It is believed that the body may have been in the area for some time, even decades. Anyone with information on a missing person in this area is encouraged to contact the Inyo County Sheriff’s Office.

We finished acclimatarci, we had fun as always and with awe I verified that, despite the 15 days spent at the sea before leaving, my physique in high altitude is fine. Question of allenento? Feeding? Of Predisposition? I have collected so many data and there is still a lot to work but soon I will invite you to share the experience gained in these last years. In the photo David Göttler
We have finished our acclimatization process, we had fun as always and with surprise I realised that, despite 15 days spent at the sea side before leaving, my body at high altitude is fine. Is it a matter of training? Diet? Aptitude? I have collected a lot of data and there is still a lot of work to do but soon I will share with you the experience I’ve gained over the past few years.

Starting last September , together with Marco Majori and Federico Secchi , the group immediately moved to the foot of this little known and known mountain. With its 7140 meters, the Nemjung, located between the Manaslu massif and the Annapurna massif, is a mountain on which very few have ventured. Only two expeditions, to date, have reached the summit and none had yet passed along the elegant northern edge, which was the goal of the Italian consortium . "In the end we arrived at an altitude of about 5800 meters, deciding that there was no need to continue," explains Farina. "The conditions were not optimal, but above allthere were frames along the ridge that made it very dangerous ”

October 8th 2019 -- Old Tat Breaks on Evolution Traverse (Sierras) - November Rock and Ice
Donatas Jonikaitis, Eric Newcomb, and Toshimoshi Hosaka made November Rock and Ice due to my alpine anchor mishap. Not long ago I had never imagined my name in a widespread publication nor that my appearance would be due to making a near-fatal mistake, but contributing to the prevention of injury and death will be more useful than our (belated) American Alpine Journal entry for another trip, so I'll live with it. Literally! (My full Evolution Traverse trip report is on my page).

Easily my most memorable and difficult adventure. This mountain and the people who surround it are truly awesome! A huge thank you to my beautiful wife Gwen for pushing me to make this trip. Additionally, I can't thank enough my good friend Tristan at The Beaten Path for arranging this epic bike/climb and Kurt Wedberg from SMI and our local guides for guiding us to 19,340ft!!!

Good news. Carlos Soria, his colleagues and Luis Miguel López Soriano rest a few hours in field 3 (7.300 m. ) of the dhaulagiri, which reached today after a very hard ascension, with very cold. At the time of writing this news (18:45) they expected the wind to be able to depart to the top. Ahead have a very long day. Sergi Sitges, who reached it a few days ago, took 16 hours (departed at 21,30 of field 3 and reached the top at 13,30) and 6 hours in the descent. At the time of writing this information is 22:30 in Nepal

Here we are! We managed to climb with the variable weather. Every day after 14th, winter comes to us. At First I'm shy, then I'm pretty shy. A few hours after our climax, the lightning came to the place where we proudly show you from the peak. The chills pass on the back, it was so sunny. Hence the name of the road - blitz! We felt on the portal as under heavy fire of Indian artillery.
And by the way, great time with Michael King. In fact, we are waiting for more projects next year. The important thing is that the team surprised and we can calmly plan the next expeditions.
"Blitz" M7 / A1 / Spider, 550 m, 12 wyc. , myiar, India. 28.09-03.10.19 Effectively under 24 h.
The road ends at the top of the crag ~ 5000 mnpm along with the lines of slovaks and Silvia Vidal.

There’s only one place where you can trek with the Bedouins and their camels across the sandy desert, explore lush canyons, feast around the fire, fall asleep under the stars, float in the Dead Sea, spend an incredible day on a camel trekking through the famous Wadi Rum and visit one of the modern Seven Wonders of the World. Oh yes, we’re talking about our sell-out trip to this magical place, Jordan! 🤩 Our 360 group is currently over half way through their trip, and we love their photos! Don’t worry if you couldn’t join this time, our 2020 dates have been announced on our website (link in bio)! 🤫 First 2

Sometimes it doesn't count only the result but the path you choose to get it...
* Pangpoche (6.620 M) Expedition 2019 *. We knew that a Georgian expedition was climbing the pangpoche from the opposite side and was in clear advance compared to us, but we were motivated to leave a mark on this beautiful mountain! We pointed the South West Ridge and already at the beginning of the month, before going up to the base camp, we had made a deposit at about 5100 MT.
On 3, 4, 5 October we made our try. Unfortunately the conditions were not the best in fact the abundant snowfall made by the tail of the monsoon downloaded a lot of snow already from 4500 M. Also our general evaluations on the ridge proved very rough because our itinerary was extremely long and complex!
In 2 days of climbing we climbed 2300 Mt of via (for the summit we were missing 800 m. ) that we can evaluate d+ with steps of 4/4 + and slope up to 50 degrees all with by ridges are and exposed!

Lukash Kotsevyak climbed Manaslu solo and without using an oxygen apparatus
In recent years, the autumn climb to Manaslu is experiencing a real boom. This year was no exception. From September 24 to 28, about 150 people climbed Manaslu. Among them are both experienced climbers and those who first take part in the ascent to the eight-thousander.
Despite the fact that Manaslu is one of the so-called "low" eight-thousanders, its height is 8156 m, many climbers use oxygen devices when climbing. The vast majority of climbers enjoy the support of agencies, guides, porters, and sherpas who accompany them at all stages of climbing: in the base camp, intermediate camps during acclimatization, during the assault and descent from it.
Against this background, the ascent of Lukasz Kocewiak is noteworthy
