Expedition / Makalu

Makalu

In April-May 2014, Mike and fellow Swiss climber Fred Roux will attempt to climb the world’s 5th highest peak, Makalu. Makalu is located in a remote section of Himalayas on the Nepal-China, about 20 km south of Everest.

Expedition / Pangaea

Pangaea

Why the name ‘Pangaea’? Pangaea is defined as a “hypothetical super-continent that included all the landmasses of the earth before the Triassic Period”.

Himalaya Expedition

Then an unexpected phone-call from legendary climbers Jean Troillet, Fred Roux and Olivier Roduit quickly changed this. They invited me to join them to climb four Himalayan summits of 8000m – an offer I excitedly could not refuse and we […]

Expedition / North Pole Winter Night

North Pole Winter Night

My expedition in January 2006 gave new meaning to the term ‘walking on thin ice’. It was an exciting and daunting new challenge. But one I could not do alone by law. Thankfully, renowned Norwegian arctic explorer, Borge Ousland took little convincing and joined me in a heartbeat. Together, we’d walk to the North Pole […]
