The Inertia

“I don’t know why we do it — why we adventure, why we explore…but whatever those words mean to you, I think it’s something we all crave, something we all need in order to grow, in order to progress.” – Tim Kemple

Death-defying adventure. Stunning landscapes. And rarely-documented feats of physical endurance and skill. All in the effort to scale the frigid crags of Iceland.

Who is involved? Climbers Klemen Premrl and Rahel Schelb are tasked with the trifecta.

On the other side of the camera? None other than photographer Tim Kemple.

It was an otherworldly experience to say the least.

“More often than not it is something you have to actively seek out, something you have to go out and get,” Tim concludes. “And that is what this trip meant to us.”
