  • Thrane & Thrane Danish Everest Expedition, 2000 – sponsored by by former Thrane & Thrane now Cobham. Mads Granlien and Asmus Noerreslet reached the summit using oxygen. Allan Christensen pushed the record for Danish climber without oxygen to app. 8600 meter.
  • Danish Everest North Side Expedition, 2013 – danish expedition to the North Side of Everest. Rikke Hoejland and Martin Cederkrantz reached the summit using oxygen. Bo Belvedere reached app. 7900 meter without supplementary oxygen and without any kind of sherpa support.

Plans are laid for another attempt without oxygen bottles in 2014/2015 given the support of sponsors is achieved.
