This winter, The North Face Athletes -- Simone Moro and Denis Urubko continue on this epic adventure to attempt the summit of Nanga Parbat, the 9th highest mountain in the world. In this video dispatch we bring you the sights and sounds from the second phase of their travel from Chilas until Basecamp.
After their first winter ascents of Gasherbrum II, The North Face® Expedition Team is ready for the next project: the first winter ascent of Nanga Parbat 8125 meters. This Expedition will feature only Simone Moro and Denis Urubko without Cory Richards; the third of the trio on the last GII winter ascent. The aim of the expedition is to realize the first winter ascent of Nagna Parbat 8125 meters, a mountain also known with the name of "killer mountain" due the difficulties and the tragedies happen during the attempts to conquer the summit between 1930 and 1953.
