His climber’s carrier is marked with such achievements as the first climb into the highest peak named after the Lithuanian name, skiing from the 7 500 meters high peak and in 2015 earned titles of “Snow Tiger” and “Climber of the year”.

In the Spring of 2017 Saulius went to high mountain expeditions in Nepal’s Himalayas twice. In Spring climber climbed into the Makalu (8463 meters) the fifth highest mountain in the world. The climbers of the Baltic states have not tried to climb this peak before. During a difficult expedition, without the use of extra oxygen, a height of 8 200 meters was reached – an equivalent to the height of the 6th mountain in the world. And during the Autumn season, Saulius successfully climbed into the peak of Ama Dablam (6856 meters) located near the Everest (8848 meters). Both the peak and the route is considered to be one of the most beautiful in the Himalayas.
