Le Gang Des Moustaches

Congrats to Helias, Ben and Fred from Le Gang des Moustaches!! To climb Nuptse south face in alpine style has been the dream for many of the most tallented alpinists during generations. And after 3 years of attempts this 3 young french guides did-it!

C’est peut être une rupture … Là le niveau de difficulté pourrait être proche d’une face nord des Grandes Jorasses. A cette altitude, c’est très impressionnant

A very beautiful line, c’est magnifique…Le gang des moustaches seem pretty nonchalant about this… piolet d’or for sure.

Awesome news from the French team on Nuptse – new route and from accounts of last year a really technical one. congrats, look forward to seeing some pictures!

My god – what a phenomenal looking route. Even getting hints as to the scale; “For me, this type of climb is not an annual occurrence. I’m aware that we have tempted fate, and that to repeat such ascents often would be suicide.” Wow.

That is a line. No Himalayan snow plodding there. Great effort and good report.

Not sure I’ve ever seen such a chilled and joyous team of climbers filming themselves on such a monster, hard alpine-style route. They’re clearly utterly nails hard to pull off that nonchalant image.
