Nanga Parbat winter expedition Nanga Stegu Revolution 2015/ 2016 Adam Bielecki, Jacek Czech

Adam Bielecki & Jacek Czech, equipped in our Salamandra climbing axes, planned to make first winter ascent on Nanga Parbat. They’ve chosen Kinshofer route and wish to achieve goal in light&fast style.


Unfortunately  weather was not on their side. Adam & Jacek have tried tree times to reach C2 (6100m), above the tough Kinshofer wall. The critical point was 80 metres fall during third attempt. You can watch movie with Adam just after the accident.

That situation and bad weather forecasts incline Adam & Jacek to finish expedition and safely go back to Poland.

We are proud that the leading world class climbers such as Adam & Jacek, were using our Salamandra climbing axes, on one of the two remaining Himalaya peaks with no winter ascent till that time.

Once again our ice-axes helped to achieve the success. This time Andrzej Bargiel made the first full ski-descent from the top of the Broad Peak (8051 m).

Salamadra ice-axes made his way up much easier, and on the way down made his backpack much lighter 🙂
