Started late the approach took a lot longer than expected with the car down from Rjukan. First pitch frank parked us in a piss wet Belay where the screws looked like they wouldnt hold a soggy Kitkat! Martin too cold so it was down to me to lead the upper pitch...Steep climbing over an Rotten ice Bridge and a Big Granite Boulder Drytool topout were not in the topo!!
