Nuptse, "Le Gang des Moustaches" opened a new route on south face
Hélias Millerioux, Ben Guigonnet e Fred Degoulet opened a new line23 October 2017
Hélias Millerioux, Ben Guigonnet and Fred Degoulet have opened a new route in the Alpine style on the south wall of the Nuptse, Himalayas.
The French trio, self-proclaimed "Le Gang des Moustaches", on October 13, after bringing the necessary gear and being acclimated, started to open a new climb line on the Nuptse Nup II (7742 m).
Initially they followed the line precedently attempted, and then proceeded slowly but effectively to the top. So the three French on October 19, after 5 days, came to the summit. They then went down fast to the last Camp, and after a few days and some unexpected (Millerioux was hit by a piece of ice, fortunately without consequences) they returned to the Base Camp.
