There is a mountain that we were seeking to tick off the list this season. The problem; it’s gigantic, quite alpine and faddy. Even though I’ve climbed a few times, it’s not all that easy to have everything on your side. We’ve been waiting since november to have stable enough conditions and saturday was that day.
For this christmas I’ve selected four good books that work very well with our outdoor lifestyle and gear enthusiast moto.

“I was thinking to perhaps check out an unclimbed trad wall in Modalen if you are up for that. About an hour approach tho, and not sure if we can get up..So adventure :)”
Last week I felt it was about time for multipitch and trad climbing so I called my friend Garro. I must confess that i was slightly afraid, as he always looks for badass activities and I was still healing my injured ankle.
