The Rough Guide to Climbing in the Solar System Tue, 06 Apr 2021 14:01:43 +0000

THE LIST of people that have summited Mount Everest is hovering around the 10,000 mark. The long-hoped-for winter ascent of K2 was finally pulled off in January. The fourteen eight-thousand metre peaks have very much been ‘done’ in all seasons and in myriad styles of ascent. You might say that there aren’t too many virgin, iconic mountains left to climb – on Earth, that is.

But what about beyond this planet? If we had the whole solar system as our playground and neither distance nor money nor technology were an object, where could we go climbing and what sort of fun could we expect?

Before anyone objects: no, this isn’t practical. There are no other worlds in our solar system with breathable air and so a spacesuit is going to be essential. They’re not known for their flexibility; stretching for a hold or reaching aft for the chalk bag is going to be a struggle. But honestly that’s the least of your worries. The cosmic rays are going to weaken the synthetic molecules your rope is made from and the cold, in most places, is going to make it as brittle as ice. But let’s not dwell on such banalities. This isn’t realistic, but it’s going to be a lot of fun.

Mons Huygens, the Moon

Space is hard, as the famous understatement goes. So if we are to set out climbing in the solar system, we would do well to try something at the easy end first. The Moon has the advantage of being close. At just under 400,000 kilometres away, rockets can get there in about 3 days. Plus, this is the only world except Earth where humans have at least dabbled in climbing already.

In the summer of 1969, Apollo 11 landed in a grey dusty valley to the north east of two peaks, Mons Hadley and the slightly smaller Mons Hadley delta. Apollo 15 was the first mission to use a lunar rover and so astronauts David Scott and James Irwin were able to drive a little up the sides of Hadley delta, to a height of nearly 100 metres above the valley floor. At times the going was so steep that the rover had trouble gaining traction and the astronauts couldn’t lean back far enough to frame a shot of the mountain’s peak.
