Topic - Norway Ice climbing gear

tonytc - on 03 Dec 2012
Hi,

I'm going ice climbing in Norway in February and I'm looking for clothing suggestions. I expect it will be around -15 so I'm wondering what kit you would buy for this kind of trip. So far I have mid weight Merino base layer top and bottom, lightweight softshell pants. I have Salewa Raven GTX boots but I'm thinking about getting a pair of Evo GTX or maybe some plastics?
A pair of waterproof pants is a must, but for the jacket not sure if a decent softshell is the way forward or maybe a hardshell like the Arcteryx Alpha SV.
I have an Arcteryx alpha SV insulated jacket and Atom insulated pants but they're more for the belay rathere than the climbing.
Any recommendations for gear to actually climb in would be more than welcome.

Cheers,

Tony.
