The Unknown – first ascents on the big mountains of the Alps and Canada

Contents

In recent years, the international mountaineering team Micha Rinn and Simon Richardson have achieved a number of remarkable first ascents on the big walls of the Alps and Canada. This fact makes them to one of the few mountaineers who are currently succeeding in opening new long routes at great heights in the Alps.
In this presentation Micha reports about first ascents on Mont Blanc, Grandes Jorasses and Monarch Mountain in Canada that led to a nomination for the 2018 Piolet d’Or.

B.C. Canada: First ascents in the Coast Mountain Range

Contents

In August 2017 Simon Richardson and Micha Rinn from Germany made the first ascent of “Game of Thrones” on Monarch Mountain in the Canadian Coast Mountains. The 1250m-long route on the previously unclimbed south-west face is similar in scale and difficulty to the Walker Spur on the Grandes Jorasses. In this lecture, Simon and Micha will describe the fortunate series of events leading to the successful ascent.
