Guslarferner - Ötztal (Tirol) NKBV - C1 course (snow/ice)


Na allerlei omzwervingen in desolate gebieden, werd het eens tijd om eens werk te maken van een aantal alpiene technieken. Je kunt nu ook niet alles on-the-job trainen. We klopten aan bij onze noorderburen voor een cursus sneeuw en ijs en voor we het wisten zaten we tussen een bende jolige Nederlanders met een zwak voor schapen. Een week vol knopen leggen, gletsjerspleet-reddingen en steile sneeuw- en ijswanden oprennen. Cursusinfo op http://tiny.cc/xnoqf

Op naar onze expeditie-trek in Groenland...



After many wanderings in desolate areas, time came to learn some Alpine techniques. You just can't learn everything on-the-job, aren't you? We knocked on the doors of our northern neighbors for a course of snow and ice, and before we knew we were among a gang of jolly Dutch with a weakness for sheep. A week full of knots, crevasse rescue, and running up steep snow and ice walls. Course information on http://tiny.cc/xnoqf

Greenland, here we come...
