Nuptse Expedition

Mt. Nuptse Expedition 7.855 m - 25,772ft

Mount Nuptse is situated in the Khumbu Himal just south-west of Mount Everest. Nuptse I (7855m) was first sumited by a British expedition on the north-ridge (Scott-route) on May 16, 1961 by Dennis Davis and Sherpa Tashi. Nuptse shares in the glory of the Everest Massif and is the southern border of the Western Cwm Viewed from the Thangboche Monastery it appears as a massive wall guarding the approach to Everest. The name Nup-tse is Tibetan and means west-peak, as it is the western part of the Lhotse-Nuptse-massif. The main ridge, which is separated from Lhotse by a 7556m high saddle, is crowned by 7 peaks and goes west-northwest until its steep west-face drops down more than 2300m to the Khumbu-glacier.

 The North Face is supporting an expedition to climb a new route on the North Face of Nuptse. This route is an extremely steep ice and rock mixed climb called "The Snake".The steep and rocky south-face of Nuptse is 2500m high and 5 kilometers wide. The north slopes are rising from the Western-Cwm valley with the upper part of the Khumbu-glacier above its famous icefall.
