In May this year Piotr Pogon will take another step in conquering the so-called Crown of the World. Along with his colleague Bogdan Bednarz and Paweł Ząbek he will scale the icy Denali. Martes Sport is one of the equipment partners to this expedition project!
Being a man after resection of one lung, Piotr Pogon has managed to conquer 4 highest peaks belonging to the so-called Crown of the World: Kilimanjaro, Elbrus, Aconcagua and Mount Kenya. He wishes to add Denali on this list in 2018. The Denali expedition team will include: Paweł Ząbek, the president of the Club De Haute Montagne in Bielsko-Biala – participant of many climbing expeditions with disabled people and Bogdan Bednarz – a lifeguard from the Beskids Mountain Volunteer Rescue Service (GOPR) and conqueror of the highest peaks, such as: Mont Blanc, Elbrus, Kilimanjaro and Aconcagua.
Despite not being the highest („a little over” 6000m ASL) Denali gets respect among mountain climbers; it is one of the most icy mountains with temperatures falling down below -30°C. Denali rises about 5 km from base to peak which is the largest of any mountain elevation figures worldwide.
In May, Piotr Pogon, Paweł Ząbek and Bogdan Bednarz will attempt to conquer the Throne of the Sun.
