Bremont Ambassador Kristin Harila has started Phase 2 of Bremont 14 Peaks in immense style, overcoming extreme weather conditions to summit Nanga Parbat on 2 July, the first summit of Phase 2 and the seventh summit of the entire project.
Following the success of Nims Dai with Bremont Project Possible in 2019, Kristin aims to be the first woman to summit the world’s highest mountains, all over 8,000 metres, in just six months.
Based on how she’s presently tracking, Kristin stands a chance of beating the new world record he set, a record believed to be unbreakable.
Kristin Harila is a 36-year-old professional athlete from Norway. A former cross-country skier, Kristin currently runs her own guiding company and leads ski expeditions in the arctic.
In May 2021, she set a world record, becoming the fastest woman to climb Mount Everest and Lhotse in less than 12 hours.
Her success in previous expeditions and summit attempts has inspired her to embark upon her latest challenge, Bremont 14 Peaks, a monumental effort to become the first woman in history and the second person ever to climb all 14 peaks above 8,000 metres in just six months.
Only 44 people in history have summited all 14 peaks, in completing this challenge Kristin would also become the first person to do so from a Scandanavian country.
Of her motivation to undertake the Bremont 14 Peaks Challenge, Kristin said, “I decided that I was going to set out on this challenge after I summited Everest and Lhotse last year.
“On the way down from Camp 4 to Camp 2 I’d already decided I needed another goal to set my sights on and that I’d like to take on K2 in the summer.”
When I got home to Norway I thought more about it and relished the thought of trying to complete all 8,000-metre mountains in just one season.
Selected by Kristin and tried and tested by many Bremont Ambassadors, the Supermarine collection is the go-to tool watch for any adventure.
Built with an extremely robust Trip-Tick® case construction which is designed to protect its mechanical movement, the Supermarine comes in several iterations based on case size and water resistance.
The Bremont Supermarine divers watches are inspired by Aviation principles. Each timepiece maintains the Bremont DNA with the Bremont Trip-Tick® case construction and beautifully finished chronometer-tested movement. The Supermarine range fulfils any professional diving requirements.
