North Face of Eidetinden on Kjerringøy in Bodö. Cold, windy, tricky route-finding and absolutely gorgeous sunset over the archipelago.

Team America (for those of you who have seen the South Park movie Team America World Police) is not gonna come and quote: "save your mother f**king day". Nor is Richard Branson's Virgin Earth Challenge or your fossil-fule-addict-put-piplines-across-the-entire-USA-president-Trump. It's up to you and me and I'm not counting on others because I wanna lead by example. Do you? For January I decided to CO2 compensate my flights with www.myclimate.org There are many other ways we can save the planet. It's simple to CO2 compensate. It is our duty to do so. What do you do?

The quarter "overview effect"*. From this vantage point earth looks like eden. So beautiful. It's tempting to escape to the altitudes forgetting the concerns of climate change, nano-plastics in the oceans, coral bleaching, over fishing and overpopulation. But I can't forget. I'm part of this dysfunctional rampage on mother earth and I don't believe that any billionaire, philanthropist or government is gonna save the day. I have to. We have to. Stop supporting fossil fules companies, use less plastic, eat more vegan and spread the word. *The overview effect is a cognitive shift in awareness reported by some astronauts and cosmonauts during spaceflight, often while viewing the Earth from orbit or from the lunar surface. It refers to the experience of seeing firsthand the reality of the Earth in space, which is immediately understood to be a tiny, fragile ball of life, "hanging in the void", shielded and nourished by a paper-thin atmosphere. From space, national boundaries vanish, the conflicts that divide people become less important, and the need to create a planetary society with the united will to protect this "pale blue dot" becomes both obvious and imperative.

Thank you for this time Geyikbayiri 🙏🧗🏼‍♂️ Thankful for the days of focused limestone climbing, mountain-running and can’t wait to come back again!

Too hard, babyskin fingers and wrong foot placement but plenty of will-power, stokeness and a plan in how to execute it in the future. What’s your plan to reach your desired goal this year? #goalsetting #plan #goal #falling #trialanderror #cragclimbing #limestone #sigmatechnology at Geyikbayırı, Antalya, Turkey

Lots of positive talking about ”new year & new possibilities” these days. Alright, but then what? Do you got a plan or is it just, talking?

Warming up in rainy but beautiful Geyikbayiri/Turkey and giving my babyfingers a shock on the sharp limestone. In 3-4 days time they are back in business again, Inshallah. #limestone #climbing #lasportiva #petzl #sigmatechnology #warmup at Geyikbayırı, Antalya, Turkey

First light hits us during our successful G2 (8035m) climb in summer 2010. Can someone name the iconic peak in upper right corner ;)? #climbing #mountains #petzlgram #lasportiva #marmot #altitude #sunrise #panorama #lfl #tb #climb #8000m #beautiful #accesstheinaccessible #petzlgram at Gasherbrum II

It’s amazing what you can see at altitude! I guess, the altitude bit helps,... ;) Photo: from my Broad Peak attempt in 2012 below the summit-ridge. #raindeer #santa #broadpeak #climbing #christmas2017 #altitude #humor #funny at Broad Peak

Can you spot the climbers? "Banana ridge" on my successful G2 climb in 2010. And no, there was no bananas eaten during the climb but I sort of went bananas because our summit days had absolutely gorgeous weather (after waiting out a 10 day storm) :) #marmot #lasportiva #petzl #sigmatechnology #tbt #banana #ridge #mountains #pakistan #climbing #alpinism #accesstheinaccessible #petzlgram at Gasherbrum II

Can you spot the climbers?  Kinshofer route on Nanga Parbat in 2011. Too many rock-fall, too bad weather. See you in 2 years :) #petzl #lasportiva #marmot #mountaineering #climbing #adventure at Nanga Parbat

Whats the strongest reaction you ever had when looking at a mountain? This video is from back in 2008 when I saw K2 livé for the very first time. "How does it look Fred?", Chris Klinke asked. "Wow and shit!", I replied. It was then this combination of curiosity, a child's dream coming true and intimidation and fear. The curiosity that would keep my spirit high during times of difficulties and the fear for reminding me that it's a one-way ticket if you don't keep your shit together and make the right decisions. See you soon K2 :) #firstsight #k2 #mountains #lovemountains #smile #dream #firstlook #climbing at Concordia - k2
