Grab your Berghaus, it's time to get out

Berghaus recognises that we’re all outdoor people at heart. We love to get out, come rain, shine or more rain. But life today has a nasty habit of getting in the way, like when we find ourselves scrolling rather than walking.

Berghaus joined the Pentland family in 1993 and, from its early days above a shop in the North-East of England, the brand has racked up more than 50 years’ experience creating outdoor gear. It’s beautifully designed and built to last to help people get into the outdoors.

House Of The Gods – now streaming on Reel Rock Unlimited, more details over at @reelrock or at the link in our bio.

The film documents Leo Houlding (@leo_houlding) and his crew taking to the Amazon rainforest and tackling Mount Roraima. Despite multiple attempts, the iconic prow has never been free-climbed. The veteran expedition leader and world-class rock climber has assembled a team, including up-and-coming Cumbrian climber Anna Taylor (@anna_taylor_98), jungle expert Waldo Etherington (@waldo_etherington) and seasoned climber Wilson Cutbirth (@wilstone8) to undertake the big wall expedition.

The Akawaio (the indigenous people of the Roraima region) will need to use their deep knowledge and ancestral survival skills to aid Leo and his team in reaching the summit.

“This was an exceptionally challenging expedition; we were free-climbing a new route on a big wall in a remote location. The intention was to bring in new blood and give others the opportunity to summit. This compounded the challenge as having a bigger crew means more equipment, making everything more difficult." - Leo Houlding

Inspiring others to get outside is nothing new to Zahrah (@the_hillwalking_hijabi ) and neither is Munro bagging. But just a few weeks back Zahrah bagged her first as a new mum, post-emergency Caesarean section and carrying her son Harris on her back. Including provisions, that’s a total weight of almost 30kg. No mean feat when you’re only a matter of months on from major abdominal surgery.

The summit push went like this; weather forecast looking good, clingy teething baby needing some TLC, and Meall Nan Tarmachan on your doorstep! A perfect combo. With a well-timed car nap done, they were off. But it’s a new adventure; packing took longer, there was more to carry, more to remember, more stops with feeds, and now nappy changes. It was not plain sailing but in Zahrah’s words, she “felt renewed and accomplished”. Sharing the carrying of Harris with her partner Tom and completing their first Munro as a young family was a great reward.

With one Munro down and Harris clearly with a natural love of the outdoors like his mum, we can’t wait to see which summit is next.
