“The fabric was pressing against my face as I vainly tried to stop the tent from tearing away from the side of the mountain. My partner Andy was desperately trying to get the stove lit in the front of the tent in order to start the crucial task of melting water. It was 3 a.m. on September 30th and we were at 7,300m on Mount Manaslu in Nepal, the 8th highest mountain in the World.” – co-founder and IFMGA mountain guide Kenton Cool and our adventure addict owner Andy recall their trip to ski Manaslu, Andy’s first 8000m peak.
Adventures like this run deep in our company DNA and, thanks to the help of Trek Bikes, Andy and business partner Chris are training for their next adventure. But this is not just any adventure. It is regularly listed as one of the toughest endurance races on the planet and will no doubt be their toughest challenge yet.
Stay tuned to our blog and be sure to follow Adventure Base on Instagram to see their journey unfold through their build up to the race and to what they hope to be a successful finish.
