WHAT IS PROJECT POSSIBLE?

IN MARCH 2019, NIMS TRAVELLED BACK TO THE HIMALAYAS TO TAKE ON THE MOST EPIC CHALLENGE OF HIS LIFE; PROJECT POSSIBLE. SUPPORTED BY HIS ALL-NEPALESE SHERPA TEAM, THE AIM OF PROJECT POSSIBLE WAS TO BREAK THE WORLD RECORD FOR CLIMBING 14 X 8,000M PEAKS IN UNDER 7 MONTHS. A PARADIGM SHIFT IN THE PERCEPTION OF HUMAN POTENTIAL.

OSPREY SUPPORTED THE PROJECT WITH THE ONLY PACK THAT COULD KEEP UP WITH THE MAN HIMSELF; THE AETHER PRO

“THIS PROJECT WAS NEVER ABOUT ME AND I TRULY BELIEVE THAT’S THE REASON WHY I HAVE BEEN ABLE TO OVERCOME SOME OF THE BIGGEST OBSTACLES DURING THE EVOLUTION. THIS ONLY HAPPENED THROUGH THE SUPPORT OF OUR FRIENDS AND FOLLOWERS ACROSS THE GLOBE.

BIG THANK YOU TO ALL MY FRIENDS AND FAMILY FOR SUPPORTING THIS ENDEAVOUR. THANK YOU FOR BEING SO KIND TO US. WE STARTED WITH NOTHING, AND SEE HOW FAR WE HAVE COME TOGETHER? THE IMPOSSIBLE HAS BEEN MADE POSSIBLE.

UNITED WE CONQUER.”
