Mt Manaslu is one of the 14 mountains in the world that are more than 8000m high and is located in Nepal. My project is to summit Mt Manaslu without the use of supplementary oxygen sharing this experience live with people via a social media campaign. A few decades ago, climbing above 8000m was still considered scientifically impossible but in 1978, R. Messner did murder the impossible: Mt Everest without supplemental oxygen! For me, an oxygen-less ascent is an aspiration to change the way climbers start approaching those 8000m+ summits. We do not conquer a mountain, it is not just getting to the top BUT it is about doing it the best/cleanest way possible. An oxygen-less ascent is one of those things that amounts to adhering to my highest standard. Climbing by fair means.
