Today I received a huge shipment of gear from my main sponsor MILLET.
Every time they send me equipment it's like X-mas (only better) and I can't thank them enough for supporting my expeditions in the way they do. Also a huge thanks to the local mountain shop Fjeld&Fritid, that provided the contact and recommendation to Millet's advertisement manager.
This time I got the 'Grand Mixte Jacket', which is their premier gore-tex jacket for alpinism. I also got a 120L expedition duffle bag, a super light pertex jacket, soft shell pants and two 'Rubix Triaxiale' 8.5mm half ropes just to mention the best stuff. Additionally I got the 'Expedition 1900' sleeping bag which will keep me warm down to -35 degrees Celsius and it could come in handy on my next trip this November/December to Sichuan.
We still don't have much information about our objective (Ren Zhong Feng), but I guess that is part of the adventure.
