SEAN BURCH TRAVERSED, CLIMBED AND REACHED THE SUMMIT OF 31 PREVIOUSLY UNCLIMBED PEAKS IN THE UNFORGIVING AND REMOTE NEPAL LANDSCAPE.
NEPAL FIRST ASCENTS 2016
NO ROPES, NO PARTNER, NO TURNING BACK
Sean Burch is on a quest for his 8th world record by first exploring previously unexplored regions and mountains of the Chandi Himal in far Western Nepal; and then attempting to summit the most previously unclimbed Himalayan mountains in the history of Nepal by way of First Solo Ascents (FSA).
This expedition, two years in development, involved working
with the Ministry of Tourism, government and private entities,
meeting required regulations, and Burch’s insistence of
indigenous logistical support staff be used in order for this
expedition to occur.
NEPAL 2016: DETAILS
Burch will be climbing in the Humla District within Western Nepal, and is partnering with the nonprofit Nepal Trust organization. His logistic
crew will be local, indigenous support staff.
The expedition will be carefully planned and managed to support Burch’s and Nepal Trust’s social and ecological goals in the
remotest district of Nepal.
