With three years off from job and only a little bit of studying there are many projects just waiting to be realised. This is only a few of them.

.

There is only ONE goal now and therefore only ONE thing to train towards: The six great North Faces of the Alps.

 

In a way that means that I need to train towards the whole spectre of climbing… I like that… 🙂

 

In August of 2018 I plan to go for Les Dru and Grand Jorasses

 

Presentation of the three first North Faces of the Alps

 

There are so much history about these routes and mountains. I will give you a short introduction:

 

Piz Badile 3.308m: Cassin route 800m, Grade: TD, 6a 

The easiest of the six North Faces – A long route that demands great teamwork and endurance

 

 

Les Dru 3.754m: Allain-Leininger route 850m, Grade: TD+ 6a

Also a long route with many loose rock and objective dangers. The route finding can be difficult and you need to cross a glacier on the approach.

 

Les Dru is the right “rocket” mountain and the North Face route goes up on the far right side on the picture. Aiguille Verte a higher mountain on the left.

 

 

Cima Grande 2.999m: Comici route 550m, Grade: ED-, 6b+

This is defiantly the North Face that I am most anxious about on our trip. It is “only” 500m long but the first 300m is slightly overhanging and it is the most technical of the three first North Faces.
