This Week at Pythom

A great Week at Pythom

Antarctica skiers are chomping at the bit; Explorershouse released an interactive route map from the continent and we talked to Arved Fuchs of the well-known Messner-route. In other news: Manaslu summits (that weren’t), Valery Rozov (BASE jumping Cho Oyu), Greg Mortenson, Adam Ondra, and lots more.

“Life is not easy for any of us. But what of that? We must have perseverance and above all confidence in ourselves. We must believe that we are gifted for something, and that this thing, at whatever cost, must be attained.” Marie Curie
