This is it guys! The competition’s over and some of you were absolutely right 🙂 Our special guest for the ice climbing week is Tim Emmett – British extreme athlete and Mountain Hardwear ambassador. What’s most inspiring about Tim is how versatile his climbing skills are. Apart from being one of the pioneers of deep water soloing Tim also sends difficult trad routes in the UK and climbs those crazy icefalls like e.g. Helmcken Falls in Canada.
Tim will visit us on Wednesday (Feb 15th) and we’re going to climb together until Friday. We’ll surely have a chance to learn from Tim’s experience and we won’t forget to share it with you. In the meantime please visit the MHW athlete section and Tim’s website to find out more.
Last but not least: we would like to thank you for taking part in our little contest. Congratulations to all three winners: Riss, blondgirl and StephAn! We’ll send you an e-mail about the prize once we’re back from Cogne. Huge thanks and Clarence’s regards also goes to Yodie for her sense of humour 🙂
That’s all for now. More news about Day 1 in Cogne is coming soon so stay with us and follow the blog. Cheers!
