In reply to Pjasi: Hi, I missed you guys last year, the weather turned a bit warm and we drove south from Kaldakinn. I think my friend skabbi, was in your group. This year I'll try to make it back. When will you have the festival?

In reply to Pezz:

Yeah, Skabbi was there and it was a bit warm.

But next year it will be from 18.02.2010 to 21.02.2010
In reply to Pjasi: Great video, thanks. Your WI4+s look pretty terrifying let alone the WI6!

In reply to TobyA: Thanks, these pillars were good looking.
In reply to Pjasi: There isn't much info on what the Ice Festival entails on that website. If some foreigners turned up for it, would there be some locals to show them about, give advice etc? I visited Iceland years and years ago on my way to Greenland, but we just hung out in Reykjavik waiting for the weather to improve. I've always fancied visiting again and ice looks fantastic, although looking at the video I think I would be more interested in the WI3s! :-)

In reply to TobyA: We have had some foreign people coming to the festival. They have just contacted the alpine club with email.

But the festival has not been fully planed. Only thing that has been planed is it will be in the SE. probably we will be using Icelandic mountainguieds station in Vatnajökull National Park for sleeping and cooking and hanging out.
But if you come here in the winter for some Ice climbing it might be difficult finding some Icelander to go climbing with on week days. And the ice climbers here are not that many.
