Sergey Kofanov

We will hear about Sergey's ascent of Mt Jannu (7710m, Himalaya) for which he received both the American "Golden Piton" and the European "Grolla d`Or" for the best ascent of 2007.

Sergey is also the youngest Russian to summit Everest (at the age of 28) and has been involved in a number of unprecidented rescues on the mountain.
In May of 2006 he took part in the rescue of Lincoln Hall (Australia) who was left to die at the altitude of 8700 m on Everest. A year later Lincoln Hall wrote a bestseller "Dead Lucky".

In May of 2007 he organized and rescued Marco Epis (Italian climber) from a neighbouring expedition on Everest. Marco had apparently been lost by his team mates and dying unconscious in the snow at Camp VI at 8300 meters. This is the first case in Everest rescue history as it was performed at 8300 meters by one person only.
In January of 2009 was awarded "The Honour” medal for this heroic achievement by "The Russian Award Committee".
