28 mountain guides climbing a rocky needle, turning it into what must surely be the biggest and most spectacular rock cactus in the Alps - Mammut was sure to have been involved. The man responsible for turning this project into reality was no less than Nikon Ambassador and extreme mountaineer Robert Bösch.
Accompanied by Ralf Weber and Thomas Senf, on August 1, the Mammut pro mountaineer Stephan Siegrist completed an ascent of Cerro Stanhardt in Patagonia.
The Swiss trio scaled the most northerly peak of the Cerro Torre group in alpine style over the Exocet route. Siegrist is now the first alpinist ever to have climbed all three of the main summits in the Cerro Torre group in winter.
On July 30, at 4 pm local time, the Mammut pro, David Lama, stood together with Peter Ortner and Corey Rich on the summit of the 6,251 meter Nameless Tower in Pakistan, also known as Trango Tower.
Starting from the sun terrace, it took them ten hours to complete the Eternal Flame route, long considered to be one of the toughest routes over 5,000 meters. This route was opened by climbing legends, Wolfgang Güllich and Kurt Albert, in 1989. The ascent for Mammut’s anniversary project was documented by breathtaking photos and unprecedented film footage.
