Hope recess week has been rejuvenating for everyone. There will be no training during Week 7 — all the best for midterms! Training will resume in Week 8. Saturday Bukit Timah trainings will also begin.
Quote of The Week
“The most memorable climbing experience is the one where you suffer the most.”
– Thomas Huber
The Huber brothers are known for many achievements. In 2009, they successfully free climbed Eternal Flame, a route that goes up the Nameless Tower, one of the Trango Towers in Pakistan. The route was first dreamt up by Kurt Albert and Wolfgang Gullich. The Huber brothers ascent is documented in this film.
