Preparing for the Lake Baikal Ice Skating Expedition – Episode #2

Autumn in Sápmi – better known as Lapland – can be quite spectacular. A vivid spectrum of oranges, reds and yellows breaks through the snow that is covering the surface only so slightly. Snow is falling late this year, giving us time to test our expedition kit on the frozen lakes of northern Sweden.

Ocean to Asgard - Part 2

We charge downstream in our little red packraft. The water is churning, pumping! I’m in the stern; Jacob kneels in my bow. It’s tough to see the line as we race along, dodging rocks and waves. Focus.

Ocean to Asgard - Part 1

This summer Jacob, Thor, Zack and myself spent six weeks on Baffin Island, in the far northeast corner of Canada and about 200 miles across the Bay from Greenland. While out there we managed to climb some big mountain faces - some new lines and some old - and accessed these mountains by paddling the ocean fjord and glacier-fed river in packrafts. How do I sum up six weeks of adventure in an article? I’ve put together a series of moments to share:
Skiing Antarctica
Joe Doherty Skiing Expedition

Skiing Antarctica

Last November Joe Doherty became the first Scout in the world to ski to the South Pole and kite ski back. The journey began from the Messner Start (80o 67’ S 65o 00’ W) where he man hauled his 100kg Pulk 912km to the South Pole over 45 days. Upon reaching the Pole he headed for Union Glacier which took him 16 days and he covered 2045km in total.  (80o 05’ S 78o 30’ W)

Zanskar Expedition

One of the amazing things about being a young alpinist from a country with a strong climbing tradition is that with an average internet connection, a computer capable of running Google Earth, and the skills to weave together a compelling grant application, you can find yourself able to attempt exploratory climbing in some of the greatest mountain ranges on Earth.

Search for Star Dust

It’s 11pm in the central Argentinean Andes. I’m seated cross legged at 4000m attempting to construct an Avro Lancastrian model aeroplane by the light of my headtorch.
