As an avid mountaineer and outdoors enthusiast, I am increasingly drawn to remote and uncharted territory.
While it’s delightful to see an increasing number of people opening their eyes to sleeping outdoors during winter, the barrier to sleeping under the stars with neither a tent nor a hammock or even a tarp still seems to be a challenge to most.
Long overdue post-expedition report from last year’s final climbing expedition. As outlined in the planning post, we were planning for a proper winter expedition with gale winds and wind chill down to -33°C.
It’s time to step up the game on alpine winter climbing, and next week we’re aiming to visit Store Austanbottstind, 2203m with a prominence of 450m. It’s Norway’s 55th-highest peak, and a mountain that requires proper climbing.
