Tantalus Range - Beers, Birthdays & Bacon!

Klemen celebrating the good life!

My friend, Klemen Mali, an adventurer,  accomplished climber and mountain guide with Climb The Peaks turned 40 this year! And holding true to his adventurous spirit, he decided to host his party in the Tantalus Range with the Jim Haberal Hut as our accommodation and a helicopter for transportation. No 40th birthday party would be complete without a Keg of beer and all the meat you can eat including Bacon with every meal! The weekend started with a bit of uncertainty whether we would be able to land the helicopters or not, but the weather changed and we even managed to get a climb of Mt. Dione in. Can't wait to return to this place!

Earlier this winter I traveled to Asia where I was fortunate enough to climb amongst the Karst mountains. I was also lucky enough to find myself surrounded by some amazingly strong climbers and had a few opportunities to shoot. I have been sitting on these photos, but thought some of these athletes deserved to be showcased to you all.
