NEW DELHI, April 11, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- LifeProof, a pioneer and global leader in action-ready phone cases, has partnered with Arjun Vajpai, India's top young climbing talent for 2018. 

Arjun, 24, will attempt to summit Kanchenjunga, the world's third-highest mountain, arriving at Basecamp in mid-April. The climbing prodigy has already successfully climbed Mt. Everest at the age of 16. He continued his journey after Everest in 2010 and became the youngest person in the world to summit Mt. Manaslu (2011), Mt. Lhotse (2011), Mt. Cho Oyu (2016) and Mt. Makalu (2016). 

This will be Arjun's second attempt at Kanchenjunga and LifeProof will be with him every step of the way. Last year, adverse weather prevented him from topping the notoriously difficult mountain. 

"Mountaineering throws so many obstacles at you, but my preparation and motivation are stronger now than ever," Arjun said. "As I get ready to battle the elements, it is exciting to know that LifeProof enables my phone to do the same. I hope to inspire young Indian climbers, and using my LifeProof-protected phone to document my climbs is a large part of that."  

This Kanchenjunga expedition is part of Arjun's larger goal to summit all 14 of the world's peaks above 8,000 meters as well as reach the North and South pole. With five peaks under his belt, he hopes to continue momentum and add another sacred peak to his list. 

"LifeProof has always been about inspiring people to live and share their adventures without limits," said Sean Murphy, head of marketing for LifeProof Asia-Pacific. "Arjun's courage and approach to exploration is an inspiration to young Indian adventurers as well as anyone determined to chase experiences.

"We have engineered LifeProof products to ensure that hesitation takes a backseat to the adventure at hand. We are proud to support Arjun's effort to summit Kanchenjunga and tackle the adventures that await him," Murphy said. 

The expedition began on the 1st April, 2018, from New Delhi and progress can be followed on LifeProof and Arjun's channel:
