ChoraChori Ambassador Nirmal “Nims” Purja MBE today entered the mountaineering history books after completing his “Project Possible”.
This morning we awoke to the wonderful news that Nims had successfully summited Shishapangma, the 14th and final peak in his Project Possible challenge. He has absolutely smashed the previous record for climbing all of these peaks. Nims took six months and six days where the previous record-holder required just under eight years. For the full background, read this excellent report in today’s Guardian newspaper.
We look forward to congratulating Nims in person when he joins us for our Big Curry lunch on the 7th December. This will be live-streamed to our supporters and if you set up a parallel lunch at home or at your local Nepalese restaurant, we may allow you to ask him a question directly….
