BREMONT PROJECT POSSIBLE: THE IMPOSSIBLE EXPLAINED

Hear from Bremont ambassadors and extreme climbers Nirmal 'Nims' Purja MBE and Jake Meyer as they discuss the toughest aspects of mountaineering and what it took for Nims to complete Bremont Project Possible.

 

ABOUT JAKE

In June 2005, at the age of 21, Jake Meyer stood on the summit of Mount Everest and achieved his dream of becoming the youngest man in the world to complete the Seven Summits (the highest mountain on each continent) and the youngest Briton to climb Everest. Jake also broke the World Record for climbing the 48 highest peaks of Continental USA in the shortest time possible. The Freestyle ® Challenge 48 was completed in just 23 days, 19 hours and 31 minutes as Jake reached the summit of Mount Katahdin in Maine. The Englishman shaved a huge 5 days off the existing record of 29 days. In 2018, Jake successfully summited K2 on his third attempt.

ABOUT NIMS

Nirmal Purja, known as Nims, is a Gurkha who proudly served in one of the British military's most distinguished regiments in defence of the United Kingdom. Nims is the first Gurkha to climb Mount Everest while serving the British Military and he is the current holder of multiple World Records for the fastest ascent of double and triple header mountains in the ‘higher than 8000m’ category. Nims was awarded an MBE for his outstanding achievements in high altitude mountaineering. Nims firmly took his place in mountaineering history in 2019 when he completed Bremont Project Possible, a challenge to summit Earth’s 14 tallest mountains, all higher than 8,000m, in less than 7 months. Smashing the previous record of nearly 8 years and breaking a further 6 world records in the process, it’s arguably a record unlikely to be broken.

To celebrate this remarkable feat and the ultimate mountaineering goal, Bremont has released the Limited Edition Bremont Project Possible.
