SOPHIE LAVAUD IN THE STARTING BLOCKS FOR THE NANGA PARBAT

The last summit to conquer for Sophie Lavaud! Last but not least. Nanga Parbat is the ninth highest peak in the world (8,125 metres), in the Himalayas range.

A little more about Nanga Parbat:


Among mountaineers, Nanga Parbat is known as one of the most difficult 8,000m summits to conquer and is nicknamed "the killer mountain".


This nickname was given to it by the German expedition which, on 3 July 1953, finally succeeded in climbing its flanks after numerous unsuccessful attempts. Before this victory, thirty-one souls had died trying to tame this giant of the Himalayas.


The difference in altitude between the summit and the bottom of the Indus valley, just 25 km away, is around 7,000 metres, a testament to its dizzying grandeur. What's more, the south face of Nanga Parbat, also known as the Rupal slope, rises majestically for 4,500 metres, making it the highest rock face in the world.

 

Sophie Lavaud arrived in Islamabad after a few days rest in Kathmandu.


The whole Sept Finance team is thinking along with Sophie to ensure the success of this summit, which will make her challenge a reality! #Letsgosummit
