What could you do for your fiftieth birthday? A man's meditation on ritual in the mountains.

"I thought I saw people in the Kate afternoon. Unfortunately they were rocks." Gorgeous meditation on self-powered solo exploration in stunning landscapes. Lovely.

A peaceful and meditative account of a solo journey. How did he carry all that kit for hiking/camping/kayak/climb?!
Every year we get a little older. One day you turn 50. How you choose to celebrate is up to you. Alpinist and mountain guide Robert Jasper is heading out to Greenland for a solo expedition. He leaves the small village of Kulusuk with his sea kayak. After twelve days of paddling and carrying heavy loads Robert reaches his basecamp at the foot of Molar Spire. Calmly, concentrated and all by himself he begins the ascent of this 500m rock face.
