Six spectacular north faces, three countries and a lot of pasta - the North6 project will certainly remain in Roger Schäli's and Simon Gietl's memories for a long time.

Exped friend and brand ambassador Roger Schäli has once again achieved a spectacular feat with his North6 project, together with Tyrolean alpinist Simon Gietl! Roger comments: "For me, this was probably my most beautiful mountaineering experience"!

EXPED tents can be set up in many different ways for optimal comfort in changing conditions. But one specific environmental condition, known as CAVU in aviation circles, might be our favorite.
