TWO MEN, ONE GOAL
THE EXPEDITION
Planned Route

ONE OF THE MOST EXTREME CHALLENGES IN THE WORLD, IN THE YEAR OF THE CENTENARY OF THE ARRIVAL OF THE FIRST MAN TO THE SOUTH POLE

An expedition that will take us to cross the Antarctic from the sea to the South Pole; only two people absolutely unsupported, coinciding with the centenary of the arrival of the first human being to the South Pole.


Broadly, the main figures of the project are:

  • 2 Men
  • Totally unsupported
  • Estimated duration:  Around 45 days, but carrying food for 65 days.
  • Start: Around 28th.-31st. October.
  • Arriving South Pole:  Targeted between 13th. And 16th. December.
  • Transport: Only using skis and sleds for charging.  We renounce to the kites for using only our own energy.
  • Temperatures:  Between -5ºC and -45ºC.

The few expeditions that face similar challenges in Antarctica, use to start up from mid-November, when the austral summer is more consolidated. We will advance the start date, dealing in the initial phase with even more extreme  negative temperatures, to try to reach the South Pole around December 14th., in order to match the exact day that meet the 100 years since the Norwegian Roald Amundsen became the first man to reach this point, December 14th., 1911. It will be our way to commemorate one of the biggest achievements of men in all history.

If we do this, we will be the first Catalan to reach the South Pole by an integral expedition, and also the first Spanish doing it without receiving any assistance.

After many years accumulating experiences in different areas of extreme adventures, Albert Bosch and Carles Gel face this challenge with the conviction to be physically and mentally prepared, and having the strategic ability to face the critical moments, and to be able to succeed. Perform. Anyway, it will be for both, without any doubt, the biggest challenge they have raised to date.
