“Our steps follow our instinct and take us into the unknown.
We no longer see the obstacles behind us, but look forward to the ones ahead.”
Kilian Jornet one of the worlds most renowned extreme sports persona in mountainering (check out his list of accomplishments here!) is about to embark on some colossal personal challenges. These challenges will ultimately test his fitness and skills far beyond what he has managed to achieve so far – even more than running Courmayeur to Mont Blanc to Chamonix in under 9 hours!
Killian seeks to undertake a number of feats throughout the coming years that combine his physical endurance and passion for the mountain environment, most that stand to change our view on the capabilities and perceptions of humans.
This is the “Summits of My Life”
The multiple record holder and 3-time winner of the Mont Blanc ultra trail will bring together the sports of ski alpinsim and ultra running as he attempts a series of mountain routes in ground-breaking style – several of them never attempted previously. He will also change the definition of traveling light as he is keeping his technical equipment to a bare minimum. Perhaps he is seeking to follow this with a future in solo-climbing?! Whatever the case, this project is set to be massive.
The project begins this summer in the Mont Blanc massif, where Kilian will traverse the massif from east to west (Champex to les Contamines) on skis, and then from south to north (Courmayeur to Chamonix) climbing and running. Neither of these routes have been attempted in previously. The project will continue into the coming years, with record attempts planned on Mount Elbrus, the Matterhorn, a speed attempt of Mont Blanc, Mount Mckinley, Aconcagua, and all culminating in an exciting expedition to the roof of the world, Mount Everest.

It’s about being ourselves.”
