Background

At midnight on February 27th, 2017, Carles Rossell and Dani Rozados took off for an unforgettable journey to set up the skimo OKT in 19:41 hours, from ski resort to ski resort. They endured harsh Winter conditions, putting their crampons and using their ice axe more than they can remember. If we had to summarise with one memory, it would be for sure this mind-blowing sunset reaching the summit of Roca Entravessada (2,928m), roped one to another. Exhausted but blissed-out!

The same way Els 2900 disrupted the world of mountain running, no skimo race in the world would leverage mountaineering like this line. “La Jumelle” was born.

Why “La Jumelle”? And why a French word? Because we like hidden meaning. Jumelle both means “twin” and “binoculars”. Twin because it’s Els 2900’s sister, and we are proud of that! Second, the binoculars reference suggests the need to analyse the terrain. Snowy mountains can be a tricky playground!

La Jumelle is one of a kind though. The race will grow its own identity, thanks to the support of the ski mountaineers willing to attempt its treacherous line. Next milestone on April 7th, 2018 for the Ed.0! 10 teams will attempt to complete the line self-supported!

The Course

You can choose your own route between summits, but the most practical routes have been estimated to be roughly 70K and 6,700m of vertical. You will tag Pic de Coma Pedrosa (2,944m), Roca Entravessada (2,928m), Pic de l’Estanyó (2,915m), Pic de Medacorba (2,913m), Pic de la Serrera (2,912m), Pic de la Portelleta (2,905m) and Pic de Font Blanca (2,904m). We also added mandatory checkpoints for safety purpose: Refugi de Sorteny and Coma d’Arcalis.
