26th January - 2nd February 2008
Rjukan is buried in snow just now so that kind of skuppered our plans to do loads of multi-pitch water ice. The easier ramp sections between the steeper bits of ice were the problem – too much snow! This also meant that most of the easier routes at Rjukan are also under about 2 foot of snow – bit of a shame for the beginner in our group who had been promised loads of low angled water ice. After we figured this out we spent the rest of the week hooking up the steeper single pitch stuff.....
My favourite route of the week – Not in the guide but I think about WI/M 5 ?
