 In June 2017, a ragtag team of local and international climbers set out for the Faroe Islands in hopes of establishing a first sea-cliff ascent.

Watch the film of their project on the iconic Trælanípa rock face. Produced by team member Andreas Thaulow with the written story by Brooke Jackson. (Jackson also wrote a feature story on the expedition that appeared  in the 2018 edition of Ascent.)
