Nirmal ‘Nims’ Purja MBE became the fastest person to climb all of the 14 worlds highest 8000 meter mountains in 2019. The previous record for this achievement was just under 8 years. Nims achieved this in just 6 months and 6 days. Aptly named Project Possible, Nims delivered on his promise and what many claimed to be ‘impossible’.
Previously, Nims served in The Gurkhas for 6 years before passing Special Forces selection and joining the SBS (Special Boat Service) where he served for a further 10 years.
Nim’s book ‘Beyond Possible: One Soldier, Fourteen Peaks — My Life In The Death Zone’ is out now.
