Nuptse is situated in the Khumbu Himal just southwest of Mount Everest. The name Nup-tse is tibetan and means west-peak, as it is the western part of the Lhotse-Nuptse-massif. The main ridge, which is separated from Lhotse by a 7556m high saddle, is crowned by 7 peaks and goes west-northwest until its steep west-face drops down more than 2300m to the Khumbu-glacier. The steep and rocky south-face of Nuptse is 2500m high and 5 kilometers wide. The north slopes are rising from the Western-Cwm valley with the upper part of the Khumbu-glacier above its famous icefall. From there the main summit Nuptse I (7861m) was first climbed on the north-ridge (called Scott-route) on May 16, 1961 by Dennis Davis and Sherpa Tashi from a british expedition. From then until Sept.1996 the main summit has been climbed only two more times.

Watch this unbelievable rock climbing video. Dan Osman (February 11, 1963 - November 23, 1998) was an extreme sport practitioner, known for the dangerous sports of "free-soloing" (rock climbing without ropes or other safety gear) and "controlled free-falling" (falling several hundred feet from a cliff while relying on a safety rope), for which his record was over 1200 feet. He was known for living a bohemian lifestyle, rarely working, and living in a treehouse for months at a time. He was the star of several rock climbing videos, which brought free-soloing to a wider audience. He died November 23, 1998 at the age of 35 after his rope cut while performing a controlled free-fall jump from the Leaning Tower rock formation in Yosemite National Park. The exact cause of the failure is unknown, but a change in jump site selection which caused a rigging entanglement is most likely.
