Photos and stories from my climbing expeditions
Living in a flat country like Denmark provides some challenges if you want to become an alpinist, but if you are motivated and willing to travel a lot, then this is easily overcome. My focus in climbing has been to go on expeditions to all of the great mountain ranges of the world and climb the classic alpine test pieces, although I have also managed to do a few first ascents.
For me mountaineering is about pushing yourself and applying hard earned skills and fitness, but it is also about adventure, friendship, enjoying the most spectacular scenery the world has to offer, making life less complicated and focusing on the task of reaching a summit, simply because you can. However, to reach a summit is not the main criteria of success in alpine climbing. In fact, many of my best and most memorable experiences in the mountains are from expeditions where I did not succeed. Adventure and the process of learning should always be valued as a goal in itself.
Here are some photos from my different climbing expeditions:
