Azim Gheychisaz on Everest 2016

On 19 May, 2016 Azim Gheychisaz confirmed his ascend to the world’s highest summit Mount Everest without supplementary oxygen and altitude Sherpa. It was his second successful ascend on Everest; the first attempt was on 2005 with supplementary oxygen.

Azim said that he started the climb toward the summit at 10 pm on May 18, in an extreme cold weather. The route to the peak was crowded and after passing the Balcony, South Summit, and The Hillary Step, he ascended the summit at 12 noon local time on May 19.

Now he is resting at Camp4 and getting ready to top Lhotse, the fourth highest mountain in the world.

On April Azim left Iran to summit Everest and Lhotse to become the first climber in Iran and 15th in the world that has topped all summits over 8000m without supplementary oxygen.

Congrats on your fabulous and extraordinary victory Azim. There are no words to express our great joy and honor for such remarkable achievement. We cannot wait to see you standing proudly on top of Lhotse very soon.

Well done on making us proud. You are our shining star.
