Cold Avenger athlete Blair Falahey is in Nepal preparing to climb Kanchenjunga in the Himalayas. At 8586 meters, “Kanch” is the 3rd highest mountain in the world. Not only is it the 3rd highest, it’s also one of the most remote. It takes at least 2.5 weeks of trekking just to get to base camp. Because of the remoteness, difficulty and expense of organizing a trip like this, it’s one of the least climbed 8000+ mountains.
All the stars aligned for Blair to take part in this trip of a lifetime. Not only he is excited about the group he is climbing with, they will be flying into a small village just two days from base camp, skipping the required additional weeks of trekking. This will save the team’s energy for the long and possibly dangerous expedition.

We’re thrilled to support Blair’s climb, and glad that he’s chosen to use ColdAvenger as an essential tool on the mountain. Blair uses ColdAvenger while trekking, climbing and snow camping.
