A coordinated teamwork is half a battle in all-extreme expeditions. But it becomes of special importance in the forthcoming expedition. The participants, who use wheel chairs in their everyday life, will move in special sport devices. Depending on a steepness of a slope, they will either push by their poles from snow surface, or pull themselves up by fixed lines, mounted before. But in any case they will move forward quite independently!

The other members of the team will carry loads, make high camps and hang fixed lines. In order to provide safety and a quick assault of the summit it is necessary to hang totally about 5 km of ropes (!) and to lift about 800 kg of the expedition equipment to 4300 m elevation.

This vast amount of work in the conditions of the polar highlands could be realized only in case of coordinated teamwork. Thus, the forthcoming ascent is the uttermost difficult endeavor from the technical point of view, but it is also an ideal test of psychological and physical stability of the team, consisting of able bodied and disabled members.
