Participants of the expedition:
In old books I saw fantastic rock formations made of sandstone. The name of this mountains was “Tassil ‘N Adjer and it is situated in Algeria at the border to Lybia. Even though I searched days in the net I couldn't find any information about climbing there. That just ment we had to go there by our own, to find out if climbing would be possible.
It was the most impressive trip of my life. Unexpected wide landscapes, million of unlimbed peaks. I couldn't believe, that there ever could be a place like that!
We made some routes, some summits, some boulders. But most of the time we were just walking around and stunning. It was uncredible. So the decision came fast: next year we come back!
