The share of amazing news about these winter expeditions reaches K2 every day. New partner Noel Hannah has announced his partnership. He talked about his preparations for K2. Or his lack of preparation.
Noel Hannah (53) is from Northern Ireland. He announced that he would be joining the winter expedition to K2. In an interview For the Belfast Telegraph, the climber provided some information about his project (English link). He spoke specifically about his preparation for this challenge, which he already considers to be his “most difficult expedition.” He said he has not been able to train this year. “Because I did not go to the mountains with the Kovid Pandemic.”

However, Noel Hannah will not find high peaks, as in the case of the young Britain we mentioned a few days ago. Noel Hannah has been involved in numerous expeditions over the past 15 years. Especially climbing Everest 8 times. He made two attempts at Kanchenjunga, which did not reach the top. Finally, in 2018, he was the first Irishman to board the K2 (photo below). So he is one of the rare clients of this immense expedition who already knows this mountain.
He has previous experience in adventure raids with many participation in Eco Challenge.
