Mountain Network founder Johan Cavé called one of his best employees on a sunday night saying “Rob, it’s going to freeze these days, really bad. How would you feel on doing some big project with me?” Instantly joining of course. Building a 15 meter icewall to climb for a week turned out to be a bigger project thought about before, and soon they boosted up to 24/7 time spent to get it running. But they did it, broke the record for the highest ice wall in the Netherlands and made a small but close-knit community extremely happy.
These pictures where made during the firsat climbs by the NKBV Expeditie Academie en top-IJsklimmers Marianne ven der Steen en Dennis van Houten.
That same week I joined the team by shooting photo and video-footage sharing the amazing project results.
