Nirmal “Nims” Purja
You may not have heard of Nims before – and there is a very good reason for that. He has spent the last 16 years serving in the UK military, 10 of which were in the secretive world of the UK’s Special Forces. However, in 2019 he left the military and for the first time can tell the stories of an extraordinary career.
As a former Special Forces operator, Nims has made sacrifices on our behalf, giving up time with friends and family to go on multiple deployments. He has placed himself in harm’s way, defending the freedom we enjoy.
Nims is also an extraordinary mountaineer who, because of his physiology, training, mindset and sheer humanity, is capable of achieving things beyond even the most experienced climber.
