Geologist based in Svalbard. Passionate about all styles of climbing but particularly fond of ice and long mountain routes. Never been head-strong, have always favored safety and dispatching climbs in good style over grade. Total gear-head.

Location
Longyearbyen, Svalbard

Best Climbing Experience
All of the classic routes I've had the privilege of climbing always with excellent folk.

Monster ice routes in Senja and Romsdal are some of the most memorable I have had the opportunity to climb.

Always looking for the next opportunity to swing tools.

Favourite Climbing-Related Discussion Topic
How so much better the conditions in Oppdal are, on Jamie's Valdres threads.
