We are a small team of mountaineers who specialise in climbing without oxygen and with minimum support.
We believe that such cutting-edge climbing will help to raise the standard of mountaineering in Singapore and put our mountaineers up there among the world's best climbers.
CLIMBING WITHOUT OXYGEN is the purest form of mountaineering. Only about one in 10 successful summit attempts on everest was done without oxygen.
GROOMING YOUNG CLIMBERS
In 2001, we initiated the Make It Real Student Mountaineering Programme at the National University of Singapore (NUS).
In 2003-2005 we trained and guided an NUS team of staff, students and alumni to climb Everest with oxygen to mark the university's centennial.
