Anders and Håkon Martin are going to the Hurrungane area in Jotunheimen, Norway, to climb Store Skagastølstind.
However this is not their first attempt attacking this mountain winter time. There have been several - a total of three so far. It is almost a yearly activity with little time and harsh winter conditions. In the past they have attempted the climb in strong winds as well as in very poor weather. The difference this year is the time available for the project as well as premium conditions for such a task. The ever present risk of an avalanche is not considered high, the sun will be joining them and the winds are showing only a small breeze. This could be the day!
