The North Face Athlete Photo show!

On thursday we’re going to have one of the most epic lectures ÍSALP has ever seen!
Tim Kemple, Renan Oztruk, Anna Pfaff, Hansjörg Auer and Samuel Elias are all in the country and have graciously offered to give ÍSALP a photo show next thursday at 20:00 at Centerhotel Plaza við Ingólfstorg
Aðalstræti 4 – 101 Reykjavík

Many of you might know Tim Kemple from his previous project in Iceland: Ice Climbing – The Iceland Trifecta
Renan Oztruk, also from the Camp4 collective, is here to climb and help with the project. Many of you may have seen him in Jimmy Chin’s film Meru where they climbed the Sharks Fin with Conrad Anker.

With them they have:
Anna Pfaff – Just before she came to Iceland she put up an amazing new route with Will Mayo called Dreamline WI6+. See the video here
She has also put up incredible and hard new routes all over the globe. You can read more about her exploits on her website

Hansjörg Auer – Many of you have probably heard of Hansjörg. He achieved notoriety with his audacious free solo of The Fish 7b+ on the Marmolada south face. See a video of that silly business here
He has done lots of hard routes on the Marmolada and has put up some of the hardest including Bruderliebe 8b+ 800m. Apart from that Hansjörg is one of the most skilled mountaineers of our day with hard big routes under his belt in Pakistan and Nepal. Read more about his story on

Samuel Elias – Samuel is a very strong climber from the states. He has put up rock climbing routes up to the grade of 5.14b and mix climbs up to M12. Here you can see his first ascent of American Hustle 5.14b in Oliana.

It should be quite clear that missing this event is like skipping christmas so we expect to see you all there!
