Jost Kobusch is back in the Himalaya and has big plans: In winter 2019/2020, Jost reached a highpoint of 7.300 m on the rarely climbed Everest West Ridge. This winter he is back again, solo and without supplemental oxygen. He will be sending us his live positions with his tracking device Garmin inReach Mini which is currently set to a 1-hour-intervall.
You can follow his exciting and ambitious journey in our Live Tracker!
As part of his acclimatization program, Jost was already able to summit Purpung Himal (6.500 m), an unclimbed 6000er in the Annapurna region.

“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”
