From 5,000m (16,400ft) on, the team used a new type of oxygen supply system from Wenoll. The 4kg heavy equipment enabled the team to avoid the dangerous altitude sickness by breathing oxygen through the nose for over 10 hours daily.

The expedition could be conducted without any incidents and casualties.

The team received supportive consultation in questions of oxygen supply from Dr. Fischer, head of German Society for Mountain and Altitude Medicine (Berg- und Höhenmedizin, BExMED).
