Unclimbed - Follow our journey

What is Unclimbed?

In the fall of 2016, three friends embarked on an adventure in the Himalayas to attempt to climb two unclimbed mountains named after Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay. Just days into the expedition, team leader Gabriel Filippi suffered a climbing accident and was rescued by Pasang Kaji and teammate Elia Saikaly. Once evacuated to safety, Pasang Kaji (a.k.a PK) and Elia, long standing friends and climbing partners, return with Gabriel’s blessing to attempt the impossible. Will they succeed with all odds stacked against them? Follow the journey to find out what happens.
