What It's Like to Climb a Mountain for the First Time

Petra Winkes lives in a small town in Holland—far from the mountains that she always dreamed of climbing. In June of 2015, she joined a Gore-Tex Experience Tour (an ongoing project that brings together young outdoor enthusiasts with seasoned professionals) and set off to summit the Balmhorn, a large peak in the Bernese Alps in Switzerland. This short film from ATLAS follows Winkes as she attempts to climb a mountain for the first time.
