First Belgian to reach K2 summit

25 July 2018


Paul Hegge, Head Of Public Affairs & CSR at Lineas, is also the holder of a national record since 21 July 2018. At 52, Paul is the first (and only) Belgian to have reached the summit of K2, a mountain on the Sino-Pakistani border, which is considered to be more dangerous to climb than Mount Everest.  Rising at 8,611 metres, K2, also known as “Wild Mountain,” is the world’s second highest mountain.

At Lineas, we are full of admiration for Paul’s perseverance, endurance and determination to outdo himself to achieve his goal. These are values we share and apply to our work day in and day out to get to the top of our peak:  the modal shift.

 Congratulations to Paul for this incredible feat!
