Ice Climbing in Rjukan

I am running a weeks ice climbing course in Rjukan, Norway this week with regular clients Simon, Paul, Jason and Mick and I have been joined by friend and fellow instructor Sandy Patterson. It has been fantastic weather with daytime temperatures just below freezing, sticky ice and blue skies. Today we went to Osmosis and climbed five single pitch routes from grade WI2 to WI4. We also did a spot of top roping to do some movement coaching from the ground. The boys all climbed well, the ice is a little thinner than last year making the grades a touch harder but there is plenty of ice to play on!
