In my lectures you can expect highly informative 90 minutes full of gripping experience reports with a wealth of background knowledge and know-how!
I am happy to pass on my first-hand experiences and tell in an authentic way about the small and big pitfalls on the way to reaching the goal. It is especially important to me to convey my passion for the mountains to the listeners and to awaken their desire to make their own dreams come true. Of course I will be happy to answer any questions the audience may have.
The Unknown: First ascents on the big mountains of the Alps and Canada
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 their first ascents on Mont Blanc, Grandes Jorasses and Monarch Mountain in Canada, which led to nominations for the Piolet d’Or in 2018 and 2019.
