Finally all meeting up face to face for a climb inside because the weather is so rubish then heading for lunch for a chat about details of the expedition. Who knows maybe even a chance for our first team photo…
Super #psyched for Saturday and maybe I’ll head to Fort William after that for some inspiration. I was hoping to head out onto the hills for a winter day out on Sunday but the weather is looking pretty pants. Good thing the festival is on this weekend and I need to get back into they gym for another killer session too.
Bring on the weekend whatever it holds for you!
Expedition Climbing Team
I am currently planning a climbing expedition trip to East Greenland during the summer of 2014.
The expedition will consist of six climbers pushin their limits of physical ability and mental strength for an extended period of six weeks.
The plan is to depart the UK around the 4th July 2014, and stay overnight in Iceland before flying to Kulusuk. We will spend 2 days prepping in Kulusuk before heading up the Fjord to a drop off point for the 4-6 hour walk-in to Fox Jaw Cirque.
The plan of attack for the climbing party is to make repeat ascents of two routes (approx), and then get straight on to looking at new routes to be explored. With the vast amount of rock face that makes up the Fox Jaw, the objective is to make several First Ascents going fast and light.
The planned returned date for the trip is 17th August 2014, with two days recovery in Iceland before heading back to the UK around the 18th August. This allows for just under 6 weeks of climb time.
Three spaces have been filled one experienced and one not, if you are an experienced big wall climber / alpinist interested in this trip then please feel free to get in touch.
