Calling Tierra’s 30-year history successful perhaps sounds somewhat misleading considering the number of fingers and toes that have been lost and legs broken. But the fact is that at an altitude of 8,000 metres we’ve nothing more to prove. Our garments have withstood the forces of nature and helped a number of expeditions reach the summit of Mount Everest. Each adventure has taught us something new. However, they’ve not only pushed product development forward, they’ve also given us a new insight. That is that the greatest experiences aren’t had when you put your life at risk. They’re had when you experience things together with other people. This might be at the top of Mount Everest, but it’s more likely to be on a sunny rock overlooking the Baltic Sea, in front of the fire after a day of riding the ski lifts in Åre or when helping one another pull a giant pike over the railing of the boat.   Tierra brings joy, offers guarantees and creates a strong heritage. Joy in exploring alone or together, guarantees in that the garments won’t hold you back and heritage in that we must leave those places we’ve visited untouched so that our children also have the opportunity to visit them in the future.   Take a closer look at the zips, buttons, hoods, angle of the pockets and placement of the seams. Much thought has been put into every detail in order to enhance your adventure. We’ve learnt a great deal from our expeditions and those of others as well as from the experiences of our own test group consisting of mountain guides and mountaineers. We’re constantly developing our new collections with the help of their input.   Our systems thinking is a good example. It means that you can combine a shell jacket with a fleece sweater and still be able to access the car key in the pocket of the sweater without having to take off the jacket. The fact that the pockets are also made of a mesh material makes ventilation more efficient.   Another example is the little button at the very bottom of the shell jackets. It helps you to vent the jacket without having to open it and have it blowing around. What’s more, the ventilation openings on the shell jacket are placed a little further forward compared to those of competitors so that the shoulder straps of rucksacks don’t rub against the seams

In 1983, Anders Andersson from Kinna heard about a new material that was excellent at repelling water and, at the same time, releasing heat in the form of vapour.   Anders immediately realised the possibilities, founded Tierra and began making clothes for extreme weather conditions out of Gore-tex. At the end of the 1980s, Tierra had contact with a group of Swedish climbers who’d set the target of becoming the first all Swedish expedition to reach the summit of Mount Everest. Today’s Tierra derives from that moment and climbing will always be a major part of our heritage.

Grand Raid des Pyrénées Fredrik Schenholm, text Viktor Winterglöd When Viktor Winterglöd is not teaching his class at school, he’s out running. Not only is he out running, but he’s covering a huge distance – much further than 99% of the rest of us – because he has a great passion for long cross country races. Viktor also arranges training and competition trips, preferably to France.

I

’m standing in the heat of the shower, in one of the many booths filling the sanitary barrack of the french camping. It’s 2:30 AM and I’m alone. Each time the shower drops in intensity, I bump the button with my back and the water comes rushing again. Again and again. My right big toe stings, from under the band-aid and the bandage. A flesh wound from hell, but I barely have the energy to grasp the pain, nor the presence of mind to consider the towel. It’s like being thrown between unconsciousness and drowse in spasmodic intervals, and each return to the shower flow is registered by the brain as an unexpected event.   A blackout later, while entering the sleeping bag, my body short-circuits. The pain is insanely intense and it seems to emerge from within my bones, piercing through my muscles. The calfs, the thighs, the backside. Beyond burn out. I want to scream and cry, take off with the tent on a launch to outer space, disappear from grass patch number 136. But I should rather just laugh at the aftershock, grin at the fallen deamons that lie with lifeless eyes: At the finish line in Vielle Aure. One could think of it as a tipping point. The moment when 786 runners set off. In one weighing pan, each ones (more or less) zealous physical preparation. In the other, a big empty space with room for some 160 km and 10 000 vertical meters. Asphalt running for a start, away from the flat land of the valley. We head for the first of many mountain sides to conquer. All around me, an advancing mass of shoes, compression clothing, rucksacks and poles, dressing our naked will to, in a day or two, return to the little square in Vielle Aure. Without getting hurt and avoiding getting lost in the haze of exhaustion. A privilege that some fourty-six percent of us will enjoy.   After 13 km and a 1 300 meter climb, we arrive at the first checkpoint, located by the Merlans Restaurant, hang out spot for hungry skiers, now absorbed in summery torpor. I fill my water bladder and acquaint myself with what the food tables offer. We will develop an increasingly narrow relationship, me and the scraps. The banan halfs, the bits of bread, the orange segments, the cheese, the biscuits and the cookies. The fact is, when you are

twenty-four hours into a race, you prefer having the calories served intavenously, letting your jaws take a rest from grinding on some half dissolved slab of baguette.   When film critics talk about slumbering action, you know the dramaturgy is shuffling. That’s generally the case in the initial hours of an ultra race. Not that much of suspens. More of a nature program with its stack of stunning panoramas. A twist of feel-good running while me and another swede share our impressions in-between the steps and the strokes of the poles. I drink some. I eat some. I turn my cap 180 degrees to shield my neck from the sun. A ridge, a turn and then downhill.

My eye gets caught in the view finder and I burn yet another mountain lake, plus some white water, into the memory card of my camera. The rushing water enchants me. In the same way that we are easily hypnotized by the flames of a fire, doesn’t the untamed fall of a torrent hold the same kind of attraction. The primitive force of nature.   Leaving the checkpoint in the village of Artigues, you can already see it, the culminating point of the course: Le Pic du Midi (2 876 m). After a handful of steep turns I emerge from a beautiful leaf tree forest and start climbing through a gently modeled valley. The bleached path doesn’t forgive. I play it safe and stop now and then to recover my breath. There is a shortage of shadow. Most of the competitors take their time to, after a few hundred vertical meters of climbing, sit down on the grass for a while, right where a rock hides the sun. Weary heads and lackluster eyes. When I reach Col de Sencours (2 378 m), a volunteer informs me that the Pic du Midi passage is closed, due to fierce winds. Meaning that a bunch of runners are deprived of an amazing view.   As I make my way into the village of Villelongue after 64 kilometers, the darkness thickens. In contrast, the assembly room of the village hall feels like a warm and welcome oasis of light. But a sense of 5

sickness takes some edge off this moment of well needed recovery. I sit down by one of the long tables and do nothing. I have no desire to eat.   It comes without warning and I press my lips together in half panic. With my mouth full of throw up I run towards an open back door, out into the night, where a small stone wall stops my body as my head takes a dive forward. There is no glory in puking your guts out, but there’s relief. I sit down and lean my back against the wall. Time flies. I try the thought of abandoning and it feels like hell. Does my race end here? Another runner comes out to vomit. A poor consolation, but an evidence that the heat and the distance have shaken others than just a battered swede. At last I come to my feet and manage to keep an energy drink and a slice of bread. I run a few anxious meters and feel more or less ready to carry on. I’m now determined not to give up on myself. After two hours of involuntary rest, I am reborn as a fighter. I leave Villelongue to the sound of my smart phone, now turned into a friday night disco, and I sing my way into the woods, into the deepest of nights and up the mountainside.   Lying on my back on top of the Pic du Cabaliros (2 334 m), watching the most beautiful starlit sky I have ever had the pleasure to lay my eyes on in an endorphinated state. If it wasn’t for a growing urge to run, I would have stayed there an eternity. My legs are suddenly in overdrive. The past thirty minutes I have been passing numerous runners, viewing every flickering headlamp ahead as a trophy to take. To sum things up, I’m in racing mode. And the 1 400 meter descent that awaits me doesn’t do much to dampen my fervour. I lengthen my stride and set off as if on the final lap of a 1 500 meter race. Out of my senses and lost in another dimension of the runner’s high. The track flows down the mountain in perfectly dosed bends and life is a playground. A hundred places later I reach the village of Cauterets, with its attractive buildings and picturesque framing. The aid station is located by the ocra painted town hall. It’s late morning and I’m taking a well earned rest. I eat with good apetite and do some light stretching, making sure not to provoke any cramps.

I ran across Gratianne the day before race day. Noticing the swedish flag patch on her backpack, I was suprised to find a fellow-countrywoman in the midst of pre race excitement. Now, Gratianne turned out to be a french runner, living in Canada, having studied at the Göteborg Business School, and since then officially in love with Sweden. During the early stages of the race I see her blond pigtail now and then. On the way up to the ski area of Aulian I decide to join her and her company brings a good dose of chatting and laughing.   While on our way down to Esquièze Sère, the second main checkpoint, I leave Gratianne for yet another capricious sprint. Not an act of chivalry, but an acting out of some inner trigger mechanism. The path turns into somewhat of an adventure track, sweeping past house sites and fields, tempting me to accelerate and forcing me into sudden slow downs in a playful duel with gravity. 112 km, 7 000 vertical meters, and running. A marathon to go! One reaches a kind of acceptance after thirty hours. With a plastered big toe in renewed shape, I absorb the surroundings with a sober gaze. The drowsiness comes and goes, but I am having a clear moment. Mother Earth persists in her art of seduction. Terraced mountain slopes dress the valley in verdure, where patches of forest and groups of houses form broken patterns. Higher up, exposed rocks wrapped in small and volatile clouds.   I’m glad to see Gratianne again at the checkpoint in Tournaboup, yet another lift station in summer lair. We stick together and hold a steady pace. Night falls. Close to forty hours in the legs when we reach the last checkpoint. I eat more or less mechanically from what’s on the tables, preparing mentally to confront darkness, fatigue, cold and pain all the way to the finish. I pull on a pair of overtrousers, put my gloves on.   With a touch of self irony, I am known to claim my resistance to cold weather (acquired from a distant and glacial military service in Laponia), but in the last ascent it is freezing. A light rain on top of that. Two British runners beside us wear shorts. We reach a mountain pass and from there it is all downhill. My tibias scream from nearly every step I take. It is about time to bite the bullet and also to encourage those who suffer even more. We pass runners that advance like marionettes, keeping their legs on the backburner. No matter our mental and physical statuses, we are all driven by a burning desire to wrap this venture up.   I’m planning my finish line celebration. Which dance routine mesures up with having battled oneself as well as the mountains for roughly two days and nights? With ten meters to the spotlight-drenched finish, I let the thought of somersaults go. Instead, I just raise my arms to the sky. With Gratianne by my side, I come to a stop and the Grand Raid des Pyrénées is over. In a way the air goes out of it all. To cross the finish line is somewhat equal to bursting out of a bubble you love to dwell inside. A state of being that you have gotten to appreciate and that you long to revisit. But the rest is welcome and I embrace it like a precious medal. I’m standing in the heat of the shower, as a winner

As the sun sets, the darkness spreads. The lighthouses on the Danish mainland start to reveal themselves, but so do the stars in the sky, lighting up one by one. As usual, my thoughts drift away. I contemplate the existence of different worlds deep in space, other solar systems, light years and other great forces that are so difficult to relate to. The first cool breeze of the evening rolls in and I ask my friend who’s sitting beside me gazing up into the starry sky if he also ponders the size of the universe. “It’s so big,” I say. “What?” “Well, everything. Can you see the stars?” “Mmm.” “They’re so far away, and here we are sitting on a rock and everything is so big.” You won’t reach Kullaberg in Northwest Skåne unless you take a detour. This horst rises from the relatively flat surrounding countryside in the form of a peninsula jutting out to sea. Its rocky and overgrown character has fascinated people for a long time and has given rise to various tales and myths. It’s been the haunt of pirates and wreck plunderers, but also of all sorts of beings such as Kullamannen (a powerful man that was said to rule the mountain and cliffs) and Tycho Brahe. We’re sitting up on the rock wall, known as Kullamannens dörr (Kullamannen’s door). The wall constitutes a large black north-facing shield that from the sea looks like a door where over the ages it was believed Kullamannen entered and exited his quarters inside the rock. This door to the mythical world has been closed for some time now, so we’ve made a habit of climbing it. The climbing here is typical of the whole area – persistent, vertical with small places for fingers and feet to grip, technical and quite simply excellent. We’re incredibly tired after a long day on the rock face. The scent of summer and heat, moss and earth is in the air. The sun disappears into the quiet sea. As is so often the case, we see several porpoises swimming around playfully in the water beneath us. Our hands are stiff from the strain and our knuckles are sore after having been scraped on the rock. Our toes are tender after spending a day in sunbaked climbing shoes. A sense of calm envelops us, brought about by our weary bodies. We eat what remains of our lunch packs and enjoy ourselves, laughing and chatting, savouring the sky and the colours of the water as the sun’s disc sinks slowly into the sea. Once the sun has made its exit, the stars light up in the sky above, one by one. We sit gazing upwards. A few gulls fly past and Kullaberg’s lighthouse sweeps its beam of light over the trees. It’s so beautiful and calm and it’s then I start thinking about how big everything is. My friend continues listening to me for a moment while studying the ostensibly perfect stars, whereupon he turns to me and says: “Whether it should matter now or not how big or small we are in relation to the universe and whether our existence is of greater or lesser significance to it, seems pretty obvious to me.” “Why?” “We’re here to play!” I ease back towards the ground, which is still warm despite the intrusion of the cold evening. Quite right, we’re here to play. Perhaps it’s no bigger or smaller than that

albarracin & text Daniel Olausson

Daniel Olausson has a passion for climbing. He’s focused on bouldering and trains whenever he gets the chance, which is all the time mostly. Over the past three years, among other things, he’s spent a total of just over 10 months in Fontainebleau, the cradle of bouldering. He’s been running the “bouldersgate” blog for a few years now, which is an important feature in his life as it gives him an excuse to devote himself to three of his other great interests – writing, taking photos and making films. Via “Bouldersgate”, you can follow Daniel in his daily life as a climbing bum.


t i e rra S S 2 013

If we knew what we were getting in to I’m not sure whether we’d have chosen this particular destination for a three week road trip.

I

made my first trip to Albarracin in Spain at the end of November 2010. When one of my best friends, who I’d not seen for far too long, called me one grey and cloudy afternoon and told me that he’d just started a three week long gap between jobs, going abroad then was something I had certainly not planned for. He wondered if I wanted to and was able to do something. Feeling really quite fed-up with everyday life at the time, I somewhat jokingly suggested a road trip to Albarracin. I can’t remember much from that moment up until we were sitting in the car a couple of days later heading south other than that Henrik, to my great surprise, jumped on the idea. If we knew what we were letting ourselves in for when we started the 3,000 kilometre long drive, I’m not sure whether we’d have chosen this particular destination for a three week road trip. Since we only left the car to fill up with petrol and visit the toliet, we had to endure two and a half days of constant numbness in our backsides before we reached our destination.   The village of Albarracin can most accurately be described as a place I imagine you might find in a mediaeval fairytale. It consists of an array of narrow passageways between beautiful brick buildings bordered by the impressive castle wall that runs along the hill overlooking the village. The place exudes a real sense of charm and I never tired of walking around discovering all the little streets and alleyways. On almost every street corner there’s a restaurant or café where you can grab a cup of coffee, a cerveza (beer) or perhaps some tapas. When we’d found our way to where the boulders lie sprawled out in a sparse pine forest, four kilometres outside the village, we were met by a temperature of plus 15°C according to the thermometer as we stepped out of the car into the brilliant afternoon sunshine. I remember us asking ourselves at the time why we’d packed long johns. When I awoke at two o’clock the following morning in the car, which doubled up as our accommodation, and the same thermometer showed minus 15°C, I immediately regretted that I’d not found out in advance that Albarracin is known as being the coldest place in Spain. Heading out the next day to the nearest town in order to buy blankets and tealights didn’t help. From that moment, I don’t think I stopped freezing until we left the place.   Unfortunately, when it comes to accommodation, there’s not a lot to choose from if, like us, you’re travelling on a tight budget. There are plenty of hotels, but because Albarracin is a beautiful village, it’s also very popular with people who aren’t climbers, leading to the prices being hiked up. Most of the people who come 27

here to climb choose, like us, to sleep in their cars in the car park or at the village campsite, which also rents out cabins. Since the climbing area in Albarracin is very access sensitive – as there are cave paintings in the area, for example – it’s really important to respect the surroundings and the people who live there. If you visit Albarracin and choose to camp, you should do so discretely and take into consideration the rules that are posted regarding how you must behave in the area.   I realise that I make it sound like I hated every moment of our adventure, but that was really not the case. On the contrary, considering the fantastic conditions brought about by the cold and the climbing that Albarracin offers, I don’t know whether I could have been much happier. I dashed around the forest like crazy, climbing everything I saw. I enjoyed everything from hanging upside down under one of the many roof problems characteristic of Albarracin, to the evenings at the climbers’ bar, “Molino del Gato”, with a cold beer in one hand and a hot chocolate in the other to try and warm up.   The quality of the problems and of the rock in Albarracin is fantastic to say the least. If there had been just as much climbing here as there is at Fontainebleau in France, I’d find it difficult to imagine a better climbing area. Unfortunately, there isn’t, mainly because several of the sectors are closed for large parts of the year out of respect for the nesting birds. Nor is Albarracin very easy to access. If you travel by plane, you either end up in Madrid or Barcelona, which are located over three and four hours away by car respectively.   Ever since we left the village to commence the 3,000 kilometre long journey home, I wanted to go back. However, it wasn’t until September last autumn before I returned. In contrast to the trip in 2010, I didn’t freeze during this visit. One afternoon, I left two bananas in the front seat of my car when I got out to go climbing. When I returned later the same evening I found that the evening’s dessert, baked banana, was already cooked and was there waiting for me.   If, like me, you’d rather endure the cold than unbearable heat, I advise against visiting Albarracin any earlier during the autumn than the beginning of October. During the two weeks it took me to tire of the heat, I did all I could to be able to climb in slightly lower temperatures. I got up very early in the morning and set off wearing a head torch to try and benefit from the night’s slightly cooler air, I sought the shaded sectors during the days, and used the evenings’ last light to tackle the problems that had not sat baking in the sun any longer than perhaps up until lunchtime. To tell the truth, I didn’t think I was having as much fun as I thought I could be having at a different place, so I made a decision that, in hindsight, I don’t regret. I went to Fontainebleau, in order to return to Albarracin again at the end of October. I spent a week there and it turned out to be one of my best climbing experiences ever

professionals We hare happy and fortunate to have some very professional users on our team, individuals as well as organizations. Have a look at our website (tierra-products.com) for a complete list of all our ambassadors. ALPINE MOUNTAIN RESCUE SERVICE

There are two alpine groups within the mountain rescue service, one in Östersund and one in Kiruna, and you’ll probably only meet them if something goes terribly wrong on the mountain. Alpina Fjällräddningen helps those in need of assistance within the mountain environment and is specialised in working on precipices and cliffs, with helicopter winching and on glaciers. The organisation comes under the Swedish Police, but the members are civilian volunteers who are selected on the recommendation of others in the group. All members are skilled climbers and the team also includes doctors.

ANNELIE POMPE

Annelie Pompe can be called many things – the freediver, the climber, the nature-lover, the photographer – or just simply Annelie. She’s climbed Everest and has a world record in freediving, but despite her adrenalin-pumped interests she has an almost Buddhist attitude to life and believes that the greatest adventure of all is the personal journey, the one within us. Her next “journey” is to climb the 7 Summits – the highest mountain on each of the world’s seven continents – and to try to go even deeper and gain a new world record in freediving. KEBNEKAISE MOUNTAIN LODGE

THULE ADVENTURE TEAM

Thule Adventure Team was established by the team captain Martin Flinta in cooperation with Thule 2009 and aims to be one of the world’s absolute best multisport teams. The members compete in both team and individual competitions in activities where bodies and minds are pushed to the limit. At the beginning of 2013, Thule Adventure Team became the highest ranked of all the multisport teams in the world. The team consists of Martin Flinta, Eva Nyström, Per Vestling (Sweden), Marcel Hagener (Germany) Jacky Boisset and Myriam Guillot (France) and has an impressive list of successes, topped by World Championship gold in 2011 and World Championship silver in 2012. ÅRE AVALANCHE CENTER

Åre Lavincenter has the most knowledge in the whole of Scandinavia about what we skiers least want to come up against – avalanches. The centre is located in Stjärnbacken in Åre, but the activities of the centre extend far out into the mountain world with avalanche training courses for both private individuals and professionals such as ski patrollers, ski guides and the military. One of the goals is to increase awareness and knowledge surrounding avalanches. The avalanche centre is responsible for the Lavinboken (The Avalanche Handbook) and the website Lavinsmart.se, and also plays an important role in the avalanche forecasts of The Mountain Safety Council of Sweden.

28

Calling Kebnekaise Fjällstation Sweden’s high alpine centre isn’t an overstatement. The lodge is located 19 km from the end of the road in Nikkaluokta and has 218 beds, a fully-licensed restaurant, conference facilities, a shop, a rental outlet and a well-developed guiding operation. Sweden’s most dramatic summer and winter alpine climbing, the longest ski runs and the highest peaks can be found around “Keb”. The oldest building dates back to 1907 and the business is run – now as it was then – by the Swedish Tourist Association (Svenska turistföreningen, STF). ABISKO MOUNTAIN LODGE

Somewhere between 90 and 100 kilometres from Kiruna you start to smell the scent of national park and a unique mountain environment in the air. When you get off the train or stretch your legs after the car ride, you’ll sense the exclusive activities that await in your surroundings. That’s just the way we want it to be: an entertaining and exciting concept nestled in the Arctic valley in front of Torneträsk Lake. Today, you’ll be breathless; tomorrow, you’ll draw in deep gulps of fresh air on the mountainside. That’s the way it should be. DESTINATION SOUTH LAPLAND

Destination South Lapland was established by the municipalities and local entrepreneurs of Dorotea, Åsele, Vilhelmina and Strömsund in order to market and sell tourism-related products and services produced in the four municipalities.

They complete the circle of the garment, i­nstead of wasting the limited resources of nature, they use recycle worn-out garments as raw material when creating new polyester fibers, these fibers are then used in the new high quality fabrics. These new garments are then also recycling friendly, and the circle is closed. This circulation of fibers gives huge environmental impacts, the dumping area are getting smaller, the use of energy and the carbon dioxide discharge is getting lower.
