We are following the epic journey of Luca Colli, a personal trainer, guide, and motivational speaker who is attempting to climb Mt. Everest without oxygen. He is also carrying an ST sensor board in his pocket to gather additional information about his performance and he’s hoping to raise funds for a Nepalese school that an earthquake tore down in 2015. It is our privilege to sponsor Luca’s journey and we are thrilled that he’ll be bringing our components on top of the world. We shared his story and his life lessons a few weeks ago, and we will continue to monitor his progress. In the meantime, you can read the original article by clicking on the link below and visit this page to get the latest news on Luca Colli’s preparation and ascent.
April 16, 2018:
Luca Colli reached Base Camp and is starting intensive training. He arrived in Kathmandu last week and began his acclimatization process. He spent a few days in the area, gathered his equipment and shipped it to Tibet. Upon his arrival there, he started exercising at an altitude of 3,200 meters (10,500 feet), and the results have been excellent. He then moved to Tingri, the last town before Base Camp, where he trained at 4,700 meters (15,420 feet). He can maintain good speed, his health is excellent, and he remains optimistic. The top of Mount Everest remains cloudy, which is normal at this time of the year. Luca reached Base Camp yesterday and started training immediately to prepare himself for the weather window that should open by mid-May. In the meantime, check out the pictures he sent us from Kathmandu and Tingri.
