The GORE-TEX® Experience Tour has teamed up with Climb to offer one of our readers the chance of a lifetime – to win a place on an expedition to China with one of the world’s leading alpinists - French climber, Christophe Dumarest. The international team, led by Christophe, will head to the Sigun Mountains in November for 10 days to seek out new lines.
This will not be an easy challenge, so in order to select the right candidate for the trip, our winner will head to the Mont Blanc area of France on 4th/5th August to compete against another 3 other climbers for the one expedition place.
Whatever happens, at the very least, you will spend two days climbing with Christophe, spend one night in a high altitude mountain hut and get to report your experience in the Vertical Diary section of Climb magazine. And, if you make it on the trip to China you’ll have a chance to tell that story too!
To enter simply email us explaining what your motivation is for applying for this GORE-TEX® Experience Tour project, giving details of your mountaineering experience. We are looking for a climber who is comfortable on 6000m plus mountains and who has experience of climbing on different terrains.
