Steve House Rupal Face Equipment

Last week we posted a video where former AAI Guide Steve House described the clothing that he wore on the Rupal Face of Nanga Parbat (26,658') when he and Vince Anderson made an alpine style ascent of the route. To see last week's post, click here.

This week we have posted a slightly longer video wherein Steve describes the equipment that they used on the route. The Rupal Face is arguably one of the most dangerous technical and demanding routes in the world. Steve and Vince were required to go as light as possible while being prepared for extreme climbing. And though the equipment systems presented here may not work for everyone, it is well worth seeing what world class alpinists prefer.
