- The sacred lake of the Dene people, the tribe which accompanied the early explorers searching for the Northwest passage.
- The Great Slave lake is located in Canada's Northwest Territory province.
- It is the tenth largest lake in the world and the deepest in North America.
- It is 480Km long and over 100 Km wide, with an area of 27,200Km2.
tHE NORTH POLE
- The North Pole is the most boreal place on Earth.
- We will depart from Barneo, a temporary Russian scientific base on the Arctic ocean, to the exact 90 degree co-ordinate of the North Pole.
- The surface of the ice is constantly moving opposite to our direction of travel.
- The expected ice thickness ranges from 5 cm to 3 meters.
Having achieved the highlight of this project (namely reaching the North Pole), our colleague Albert Bosch will have become one of the few human beings to have reached the 3 epic Poles on Earth: the South Pole, the North Pole and Mount Everest. Our team aims to complete this project by the end of April 2018.
Besides this project’s value in terms of its sport and environmental awareness aspects, it is also certain to attract widespread media coverage. Albert Bosch will have achieved his personal goal of reaching the North Pole – in addition to having summited Mount Everest on the 17th of May 2010, and ending his solo voyage to the South Pole on the 4th of January 2012 – after having successfully travelled the whole of Antarctica and, hence, spent forty-eight days in complete isolation.
Albert Bosch is an individual with a long-established trajectory as an adventurer, entrepreneur and writer.
Amongst his many adventures, the following should be highlighted: his solo expedition to the whole of the Antarctica from the coast to the South Pole (1,152 Km); the “7 Summits” Project”, where he climbed the highest peaks in each continent, where Mount Everest was the final destination; nine Dakars (two completed by motorcycle and seven by car), where he became in 2015 the first pilot to ever end the race using a fully electric car; his participation in several Ultra Marathons and over one hundred other races and extreme sports challenges.
Pako Crestas is a forty-seven year old alpinist established at El Garraf (Spain) who has over thirty years of mountain experience.
He is also a well-established writer, with thirty-eight publications under his belt including single and co-authored books, reports (over 150) and has taken part in over 200 conferences.
It should also be noted that he has been in nearly two hundred occasions the first man to ever access certain slopes, whether rock, ice, snow or a mixture of all these, some of which were in virgin territory. These include thousands of ascents to the Spanish Pyrenees, Montserrat, Montsec, Central Mountain Range, Sierra Nevada, the Alps, Dolomites Mountain Range (Italy), Etna (Sicily), Ben Nevis (Scotland), four different ascents to the Mount Elbrus (Caucasus Mountains), Canadian Rockies, Appalachian Mountains, Valdez Mountain (Alaska), Mount Damavand (Iran), Solo Khumbu (the Himalayas), Cordillera Real (Bolivia), Mendoza Andes (Aconcagua, Argentina) and Cerro Marmolejo (Chile). He has also been to Corsica, Greece, Jordan, Kyrgyzstan (Central Asia), Quebec, Colorado, Mexico and Patagonia.
Pepe Ivars is an outstanding alpinist completely familiar with many mountain disciplines such as rock, ice and mixed climbing, as well as long distance mountain races and expeditions. He was born in Denia (Spain) and has been living in London since 2001.
For the past twenty-years he has successfully combined his job with his passion for the mountaineering. He has taken part in several adventures and expeditions in far-off and isolated regions such as Pakistan, Russia and Nepal. Along these lines, it should be mentioned that he was one of the few alpinist to finalise the ascent to the Ama Dablam (Nepal) in the 2015 mountain season.
Besides expeditions and climbing projects, he is a regular participant in mountain races as well as cycling ones, activities which help him to be in a prime physical condition.
Finally, it should be mentioned at this stage that he has received the British Mountain Leader Award and belongs to the highly prestigious Alpine Club.
