Dutch Alpine Training
Holland is a very flat country, but we look for everything and every occasion thats possible for training and that come close to what we can face in the Alps.
15/12/09 Climbing; Nighttraining with headlights.
19/12/09 Climbing; temp. -8 with Alpine gear.
27/12/09 Climbing; with Susanne, lead several routes in the rain.
02/01/10 Climbing; Melchior, Hans, Mike, Susanne, David.
06/01/10 Climbing; Nighttraining with bivouac; Melchior and David .
To make this as realistic as possible we will be fully self supporting so we bring our own cooking gear, water, food and sleepingbags.)
At this moment the bivouac has take place in the night of 06 jan - 7 jan 2010. We start with nightclimbing in the snow. We take a brake at the plateau halfway for "kaissersmarren". We had planned the bivouac at the top of the climbinghall, but the conditions on the walls were to bad to get there. A lot of snow an very slippery. We take tha plateau for the bivouac and spent a cold night here. In the morning the conditions were better and we have reached the top. I was a very good experience.
