Topic - What gear for Norway/Lofoten trad?

Kemics - on 07 Jun 2013
So with my trip looking like a certainty, i've started to think about what gear to take. Is there any specialist/useful gear to take?

It seems to mostly be granite wall/slabs following thin seems. I've got small cams and wires covered.

Would it be worth adding any of the following to my rack:

>some micros/brass wires?
>alloy offsets to bolster my mid range wire selection (currently have two standard sets 1-10)
>a bigger cam. My biggest is currently the yellow camalot (size two I think) which is about hand crack sized. Is it worth investing in a slightly bigger size for fist cracks.
>More quick draws (I currently have 10) thinking about 40 meter pitches, seems like it'd be easy to run out of QDs.


Though considering all this is doing 460 meters routes, perhaps I should think fast and light rather than well geared and heavy?

What would people consider an ideal rack for Lofoten?

Thanks!
