All the details for the expedition to Sichuan have been settled now and the flights and permit are bought. The team will consist of Martin Ploug, Carsten Jensen and I (all Danes) and we will of course climb in alpine style.
Our first objective will be the northwest face of Ren Zhong Feng and if there is time we will also try the northeast face. This is only a tentative plan of course, as it all depends on the actual conditions and the weather. We are not even sure if we will be able to approach the mountain through the northern valleys, so we'll just have to do some reconnaissance once we are there.
Training is going well and I'm in pretty decent shape by now, from drytooling at Hans Tavsens Park and from running up the 16 floors at the local hospital.
