Horia Colibășanu Will Announce the 2015 Expedition on January 15
Bucharest, January 11: Romanian-born pure climber Horia Colibășanu, atop of seven 8,000-meter summits so far, will announce his next climbing project, planned to take place between March-May 2015, on Thursday, January 15.
He will make this announcement to the press, public and partners soon after watching the video story of last year’s expedition, “The Other Everest”.
The 2014 expedition, where Horia Colibășanu’s climbing partner was Peter Hamor (Slovakia), had as an objective to open a new route on the Northside of Mount Everest (8,848m), the world’s tallest mountain. The weather conditions on Everest – including strong winds and large surfaces of blue ice – prevented the Romanian-Slovakian team from climbing on the planned route.
The two climbers tried though to ascend on the standard route, twice, but they were forced to abort the climb above the North Col (7,500m).
In 2014, Horia Colibășanu and Peter Hamor were the first climbers in the Himalayas to reach an 8,000-meter summit (Shisha Pangma, Tibet), on April 30, on Inaki Ochoa route. Romanian Justin Ionescu was part of the team.
On Thursday, Horia Colibășanu will disclose information about his coming expedition: mountain, route, partner and schedule.
