Nico Favresse——Baffin Island Expedition UPDATE #3
Black Diamond athlete Nico Favresse is on an expedition to Baffin Island with the objective to establish new free routes in the Weasel Valley. He and partners Sean Villanueva, Olivier Favresse and Stephane Hansens will spend two months in this very remote part of the globe and hope to discover amazing first ascent possibilities.
Nico plans on sending us updates via their satelite phone as the adventure and climbing develops. We will post his messages here so that everyone can follow along, so be sure to keep checking back for updates from the team!
Here is Update #3 we received from Vero (Olivier’s girlfriend):
9/07: 2 days ago Olivier wrote me they climbed a tower of 800 meters in very good weather conditions. The region is magical and temperatures are perfect. Now they continue carrying their stuff in the direction of Mount Asgard. (if I’m correct a plane will parachute them food at the foot of Mount Asgard early August)
12/07: Until now they haven t seen a cloud yet and temperatures are just perfect (it seems Yosemite). They ve been jamming and bathing a lot. Today they will attempt a push of the Mount Asgard.
