Running 7 Summit

Mt. Everest Speed Ascent

The RUNNING7SUMMITS project by Luca Colli (athlete and recordman), aims to achieve a climb to the summit of Mt. Everest in speed, from the Tibetan side, on foot, without the help of skis, oxygen and without external assistance. From the base camp to the summit. Luca Colli intends to be the first mountaineer in the world to have climbed all the Seven Summits in speed from the base camp to the summit, without the help of skis and oxygen, avoiding intermediate camps, according to all the possible geographical interpretations.The Mt. Everest is the highest peak of the Earth, its height is 8.848 m asl and is located in the Himalayas, on the border between China and Nepal. Arctic temperatures enhanced by the effect of windchill, very wide crevasses bypassed by inconsistent snow bridges and mainly unfavorable weather, are the main obstacles against which we must fight to reach the top. Each group of climbers must be completely self-sufficient, even in case of rescue and recovery due to a fall into a crevasse, a possibility that is not so remote. On the mountain there are no shelters or other structures that can facilitate the climb. Till 2010, 5,104 people were able to successfully reach the summit of Everest and 219 those who lost their lives.
