about Radu Albu

“There are no shortcuts in life, nor on the mountains. While one can aim high and strong, the summit is optional. Success is giving your all, and coming home safe”  As a professional, Radu is attracted to Alpine Climbing and going at high altitudes without using supplemental oxygen. He’s now setting the stage to achieving his dream to climb safe all 14 peaks above 8,000 m, without the use of supplemental oxygen.

A summary of past and future personal expeditions
Ama Dablam 6,814m-2018

This expedition is a strong prerequisite to Everest. In terms of technicality Ama Dablam is considered harder than Everest.

Ama Dablam 6.814m – 2017

Ama Dablam means „Mother’s necklace” as the long ridges on each side look like the arms of a mother protecting her child.

Island Peak 6.189m – 2018

The first time I reached Island Peak’s summit was in 2016, now leading an International Expedition to summit the peak again.

Kilimanjaro 5.895m – 2018

Mt. Kilimanjaro is a good training for high altitude climbing, especially summiting it twice in a year: summer & winter ascent.

Manaslu 8.163m – 2018

Challenging and unpredictable, the Mountain of the Soul will be my first +8,000er to summit and the start of reaching my dream.

Mont Blanc 4.810 m – 2018

Have summited it 5 times and I still find it beautiful and challenging. I love this capricious mountain and will keep returning.
