The Greater Mission

On Wednesday, May 29th, 2018, on the International Everest Day, Sport Climbing Fiji in conjunction with the Fiji Mountaineering and Climbing Association adopted an important decision to work together and in the coming years, to raise Fiji’s flag at the summit of the world’s highest peak – Mount Everest (8,848.89 M).

In addition to that, to raise Fiji’s flag at the summit of 13 other +8,000-meter peaks in the world, ranked by the International Climbing and Mountaineering Federation (UIAA). These 13 peaks together with the Mount Everest are known as the Eight Thousanders in the world mountaineering community: K2 (8,611 M), Kangchenjunga (8,586 M), Lhotse (8,516 M), Makalu (8,485 M), Cho Oyu (8,188 M), Dhaulagiri I (8,167 M), Manaslu (8,163 M), Nanga Parbat (8,125 M), Annapurna I (8,091 M), Gasherbrum I (8,080 M), Broad Peak (8,051 M), Gasherbrum II (8,034 M) and Shishapangma (8,027 M).

Furthermore, the important joint mission of Sport Climbing Fiji and the Fiji Mountaineering and Climbing Association was further classified into two very important projects, namely:

  • The FijiEverest Project
  • The Fiji Expedition To Great Mountains Project.

Mount Everest is the ultimate challenge for us. It is an exciting opportunity to achieve a long-term goal working in a team effort with our respected sponsors. It is a truly test of the human spirit based on passion and motivation.

Fiji’s Everest Expedition is a six-year project. Spanning the Expedition over a six-year period provides many benefits for our sponsors and us. This schedule will allow us to thoroughly test all our equipment at altitude in severalmountains and summits and to prepare physically and mentally for this exceptional challenge. Thusly, our primary mission goals can be attained and we can continually foster long-term relationships with our sponsors and long-term promotion of their products.

In preparation for the Mount Everest, we will be climbing peaks in the China, Pakistan, Nepal and India, and the products and brands from our sponsors can be displayed in those expeditions.
