This summer Jon Glassberg travelled to Europe to "“learn more about alpine climbing and mountaineering." The American climber and photographer wanted to put his rock climbing skills to the test "on big routes and iconic mountains, get scared, and have some adventures" and for this he chose to team up with Jorg Verhoeven.

Ever since winning the Lead World Cup 2008 the Dutchman has been gathering a well-rounded climbing curriculum, which embraces climbing in all its forms from hard bouldering to a rare free ascent of The Nose on El Capitan in Yosemite. In 2013 Verhoeven surprised some with his solo traverse of the Zillertaler Hauptkamm and now, during 20 intense days of climbing across the Alps, the duo have ticked some of the absolute and most beautiful classics.

Summits and Routes:
Marmolada - “Tempi Moderni" - The Dolomites, Italy
Fußstein (3380m) and Olperer (3476m) - Zillertal Alps, Austria
