1602 – A cloud at the top of the mountain

A short nicely filmed video about a 3 days visit on Athos and climbing to the top after spending the night at Panagia at 1500 meters. Unfortunately the next morning the summit was covered in a cloud but they did go anyway. Reaching the top there was a very strong wind but the lonely cloud did not move. A strange phenomenon.

When we climbed in 2011 we were lucky that the sun was shining over Mt Athos, no cloud to be seen. This is the short impression I made when reaching the top that year. I promised myself not to climb the top ever again after doing it 2 times but now I am not so sure anymore. I maybe do it again sometime. It is a long very exhausting hike but it is special and the memories are great.  Schermafbeelding 2014-06-25 om 14.12.25
