/ Video from Ice climbing festival in Iceland 2009
Me and Róbert have been putting to gether clips from the ice climbing festival in Iceland 2009.
This year it was in the West fjords in a valley called Bíldudalur
Here is the video:
Next years festival 2010 will be in the SE part of Iceland
More info on :
Yeah, Skabbi was there and it was a bit warm.
But next year it will be from 18.02.2010 to 21.02.2010
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.
Found an article on the internet, people that came here ice climging 2007.
Fun to read.
