Mt Blackburn 2014: KOVEA provided stoves, cook sets and lanterns for the ground breaking Ataraxia Kite surfing expedition to Alaska in 2012. A stunning adrenalin-fuelled film of their experiences was featured on the 2013 European Mountain Film tour.
This year KOVEA and MercatorGear are proud to support the same team in their latest expedition to make the first ever kite-assisted attempt on America's 5th highest mountain, the 4,996m Mt Blackburn, Alaska. Temperatures at base camp were regularly below minus 20, and the team relied on KOVEA Booster+1 multifuel stoves to melt snow for every drop of water required and for cooking. They also used KOVEA Alpine Pot Wide for rapid water boiling and tested the KOVEA Spider 4-season remove canister stove for low temperature/high altitude usage.
