Climb for Climate Hopes to Bag 82 Summits in 100 Days (Rock and Ice)

on

Climbers Peter Sandahl (Sweden) and Danny Uhlmann (United States), have summited 35 4,000 m (13,123 ft) peaks since May 5, when Climb for Climate began. The duo has been climbing for 54 days so far, through some “very challenging weather,” and hope to summit 47 more 4,000ers by August 13. The climbers are undertaking this endeavor in hopes of raising awareness about climate change, and particularly its effects in the European Alps.

Rock and Ice spoke with Fredrik Hertzman, Climb for Climate’s project manager, by phone about the motivations behind the expedition. “This project is about, first and foremost, raising awareness about the climate change in the Alps,” Hertzman said. “The climbing is mostly a vehicle in order to raise awareness, but the actual goal of the 82 summits is also a personal ambition for both Peter and Danny, so it’s sort of a two in one.”
