THE CRYSTAL SHIP is out on our YouTube Channel!

In June 2022 Jerome Sullivan, Christophe Ogier and Victor Saucède travelled to the remote Hispar glacier in Pakistan to attempt the first ascent of the Pumari Chhish East (6850m). They succeeded through a new route that they called The Crystal Ship (M7, 6b, A2, 1600m), after 5 days on the wall.

This is their story.
