Climbing Hidden Peak is one of the
worlds most arduous achievments, a challenge against the
forces of weather and deminished conditions at heights
well over 7000 meters. It makes for one of our eras most
exciting adventures, to climb Hidden Peak, a 8068 m high
mountain without oxygen or carriers is one of our life
times greatest challenges. It is a human achievment built
upon the individuals will and ability to work in a team.
Trust between humans and a personal responsibility. This
requires the outmost in regards to equipement and
teamwork, which is made possible through participating
companies engagement. The Swedish Hidden Peak Expedition
1997 is the first Swedish attempt of the mountain.
Internationally only a few have succeded in reaching the
top. And for that reason documentation is limited. Which
strengthens the adventures unique character..
The purpose is to professionally develop the great promotional values internally as well as externally, in a way that participating sponsors/companies can obtain the greatest amount of value for their contribution.
The purpose for as well the project members as the sponsors is to participate in one of our lifes greatest adventures.
The expeditions members
together with the sponsors are going to test /evaluate
new equipement, conduct nutritionalphysiological tests as
well as documenting the expeditions procedures for other
future Swedish expeditions to the area.
The goal of the expedition is to put at least one person on top of Hidden Peak 8.068 meters above the sea.
Swedish Hidden Peak Expedition 1997 is a venture that is built upon the following important qualitative values:
Responsibility, the climber has immediate resposibility his own life but also that of the other climbers. This requires a great deal of resposonsibility of the project and the basic principles which the project stands for. Responsibility for the broader goals, partial goals, the sponsors and supporters.
Performance, the individual physical and psychological achievment at these heights are amoungst the most extreme a human can endure. Conditions are marginal in this oxygen depleted enviroment, the winds can reach up to hurricane forces and the cold can drop below 40 degrees celcius. Most of one energy and health disappeared during the tour to the mountain, resources are minimal, assistance from outside is not to rely on. No one reaches the top without overcoming themselves several times.
a expedition to a mountain above 8000-meters requires
careful preparations and years of planning. Every thing
from financing, equipement, climbing schedule, media / PR
and sponsors requires careful planning. A well prepared
team can manage improvisations when unexpected events
Enviroment, the enviromental goals of the expedition are:
The enviromental and cultural goals require that everything we brought to the mountain returns with us, and to contribute to leaving the counrty with as little affect as possible, without risking the safety of any of the expeditions members.
