Komperdell exploring Ecuador with our athlete Philipp Ausserhofer
Our athlete Philipp Ausserhofer went for his first real trailrunning and mountain climbing adventure. His goal was conquer high peaks and run through epic landscape in Ecuador/ South America. And for sure, I took the lightest poles on the market with me.
Ecuador is not only perfect for trailrunning, but also for extreme alpinism. Climbing the highest volcanoes in Ecuador is an unforgattable experience: sulfurous air, strong wind and cold temperatures are demanding the ability to suffer. Technically those peaks are not as difficult as the high mountains in Europe, but they are perfect to gain some experience with climbing on high altitutes. Passing trailrunning or trailkraxl, how Philipp calls it, on the big mountains, is one of his next years plans.
