Topic - Winter climbing on Svalbard?

Calum Nicoll - on 24 May 2013
I might have a week or two spare in december on Spitsbergen. I'm keen for the climbing, is there much done in winter?

Aware it will be pretty dark, and pretty cold. Is there likely to be enough moonlight to get some vis/not have to use headtorches (for fairly easy routes). Is there any twilight or just uniform darkness?

Also, likely to be cold enough to not need to bring waterproofs?

Probs be sticking within area 10 cos it seems like less hassle, but not sure if there is enough worthwhile hills there for a couple of weeks.

Thanks all
