Thanks for sharing.
Very nice, thanks. I was there in mid May and the snow was still at sea level. Well done on Stor Jaegervastind, did you go to the main summit or the foresummit? The ridge to the main summit looks a bit tricky from the pics I've seen. Its one of the big ticks in Lyngen and I'm keen to do it one of these days.
We were there 4-11 May.
Great pics! It looks like you had a winner of a day on Kval°ya. I've just skied up to a little bump there to watch my mate paraglide http://www.vimeo.com/10726311 and climbed in summer, but would love to ski the peaks too!
Did you summit on Lakselvtindane? I dragged rope and climbing gear up there in May but there were big snow mushrooms falling into the gully so we wimped out and went and skied up one of the easy peaks instead! :)
TobyA We had ropes with us on Store Lakselvtinden but we are really more about the skiing than the climbing, we ascended the summit gully which ramped up to just over 50 degrees and made for a great ski descent. We carried on to summit of Imbodentinden with the intention of dropping off the north side but the cloud came down and so we returned via the easier Tomasrenna couloir which was a nice ski.
Done. Thank you. Great pictures
I can't imagine it's of much interest to those who don't know Lyngen or at least are thinking of going there, but if you fall into one of those camps then you might enjoy it. Mikko picked some different music from your normal ski/climbing films too! And, yes, I'm the one falling over a lot.
But more fun when super telemark-man finally falls over!
These things we hold to be self evident, that eventually all telemarkers fall over.
