Best Climbing Experience
All of the classic routes I've had the privileged of climbing with some excellent folk are my most memorable

A few monster ice routes in Cogne, Senja and Romsdal have been particularly memorable, some more than others.

Sunny summer days on big routes in Switzerland, France and Italy, combining nice exposure with stunning views.

Ski mountaineering in the wilds of Romsdal and Jotunheimen - combining alpine climbing routes with a ski descent.

Exploratory forays looking for new ice routes in the lesser knows areas around Trøndelag.

Favourite Climbing-Related Discussion Topic
