Live mountaineering presentations
Rough mountains, intense experiences, failure and success – expect gripping adventures with fascinating photographs, inspiring stories and informative background knowledge in my lectures.
I am happy passing on my first-hand experiences and telling in an authentic way about different motivations, team spirit as well as the small and bigger pitfalls on the way to reaching the goal.
In doing so, it is particularly important to me to convey my passion for the mountains to the listeners in order to create space for inspiration and to provoke reflection.
I am particularly looking forward to a lively dialogue and will be happy to answer any questions from the audience.
Ice climbing in the far north
Both the geologically unique Iceland as well as Norway with its breathtaking landscapes far above the Arctic Circle are among the top destinations for ice climbers worldwide. Climbing massive icefalls, discovering new ice climbing areas, long cold nights and waiting for the northern lights – the far north offers many fascinating facets.
In this presentation, Micha Rinn talks about spectacular icefalls and the allure of discovering new areas in remote regions that freeze into ice every winter. A ramble through some of the best ice climbing areas in northern Europe.
Duration: 45 minutes
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.
