Stetind

Friday, June 29th, 2012

Stetind is the national mountain of Norway and the four of us visited the summit over midnight on 28th June. Dave and I via the normal route and Tony and Spike climbed the fabulous South Pillar. Now on the plane with free wifi enroute to Edinburgh and more rain! More photos to follow from this very successful trip at this link

Lofoten

Wednesday, June 20th, 2012

Just arrived en route to Lofoten. Climbed Klubrutta, grade around Very Severe on Eidetind, S.E. Buttress, a good starter, south of Narvik and with six good pitches. This is a holiday trip with Spike, Dave, Tony and yours truly.

Our accommodation included old fisherman’s huts (Rorbus) at £20 each a night, wild camping or just sleeping out under the stars. Fly Norwegian Air via Edinburgh – Oslo – Narvik/Harstad and rent a vehicle. Other climbers we met, felt it had been cheaper to fly into Sweden as car rental and food supplies are a lot cheaper in that country. Do your own research.
