In our first Live Tracking season on Mount Everest, we followed Australian mountaineer Andreas Breitfuss on his Everest journey.
Ascending via the famous South Route, Andreas was able to reach the summit on the 19th May 2012 @ 2:09 pm, along with his partners George, Marty and their Sherpas.
Prior to that, Andreas, being a novice climber, went through couple months of hard training and preparation, summitting Pumori in the progress and learning everything that was necessary for his summit success.

Andreas Breitfuss - Everest via South Route
“Visiting the routes virtually and evaluating options step by step in combination with tour reports was very valuable for my preparation – at the same time, the 3D live tracking made communication a lot easier and helped many people to participate”
