Climbing Trango Pulpit with Robert Caspersen

In November/December 2017, I fortunately got an opportunity to visit the Antarctic continent again, this time together with my three good friends Ole Ivar Lied, Ivar Tollefsen and Trond Hilde. Our main target was the over one thousand meters high east face of Gessnertind (3020m). It’s only four or five peaks in Queen Maud Land that are higher than 3000 meters, and Gessnertind is the closest neighbor to Jøkulkyrkja (3148m), the highest. Gessnertind is an alpine peak, and the only one of the 3000 meters that requires proper climbing with a rope to reach the summit.
