Im Winter allein auf den Mount Everest.
„Einige Leute sagen, dass ich spinne“ – Jost Kobusch
The Gorilla Conquers the Himalayas
Jost Kobusch is part of our hep sports team. The 29-year-old extreme mountaineer from Bielefeld is currently in Nepal. His big goal is to be the first solo climber to scale Mount Everest in winter via the extremely dangerous northern route.
Risk, Courage and Sustainability
In addition to meticulous preparation, the bold undertaking requires a fair amount of risk-taking and a large portion of courage: “Some people say I’m crazy,” he says. “But it’s a healthy craziness. It’s not like I do it without preparation.”
Yet Jost is concerned with more than just personal success. With his ascent, he wants to show that sustainability and extreme sports are not mutually exclusive. His motion: “You should leave the mountain in a better condition than you found it.” This conviction, his unconventional expedition planning and his mental strength make Jost one of the most impressive alpinists of our time, even at a young age.
