Carl Hall is back at Hotel Aak to make new attempts to climb Romsdalshorn. After two more unsuccessful attempts with John Venge, the 53-year-old local mountain guide did no longer want to take part. On the 31st of August, Carl Hall starts his seventh attempt to reach the top of Romsdalshorn, this time together with the local mountain guides Mathias Soggemoen and Erik Norahagen. The next day, September 1st, they finally get to the top - only to discover that two local boys had been up there more than fifty years earlier.
At the same time as Carl Hall made his sixth unsuccessful attempt to reach the top of Romsdalshorn, the English climber William Cecil Slingsby succeeded in the first ascent of Store Vengetind on the 24th of August together with Johannes Vigdal. Slingsby's starting point was also Hotel Aak.
