Follow his ascent live in our interactive 3D map.

First ever solo attempt of Mount Everest in winter

The 27-year-old German extreme mountaineer Jost Kobusch wants to try something this winter that no one has done before. Jost wants to climb Mount Everest solo, without artificial oxygen and in winter. 3D RealityMaps accompanies him live with his project.

Jost Kobusch's way to the summit

The video shows Jost's planned route to Everest. From Lukla it goes via Namche Bazar, Tengboche, Lobuche and Gorak Shep to Everest Base Camp. From here, Jost is planning to take the demanding route over the Lho La Pass and the subsequent west ridge to finally reach the summit through the Hornbein couloir.

Jost Kobusch's mission: solo, in winter and without artificial oxygen to Everest

Jost's trademarks are solo ascents at high altitudes. His minimalist approach is a way for him to set difficult goals and achieve them in a way that conserves resources and the environment. He deliberately turns away from today's age of extreme tourism and is committed to the 'departure into the unknown'. This extraordinary expedition takes him across the west ridge to the winter roof of the world. Jost carries a SPOT tracker with him, which regularly sends us his location on the 3D map.

Be there live and follow Jost in his attempt to achieve the seemingly impossible!
