The trip to
Norway was amazing, lot´s of inspiring and wonderful ice climbing lines great
alpine climbing and a good climbing ethic. The people are very hospitably and they say
things straight out, what makes it very uncomplicated.
been in the Lyngen Alps for iceclimbing and shooting aurora borealis. So the
days where quiet long, but I like the feeling of a harsh nature and the cold
with the big sleeping bag in view ;).
We where a
nice team with Hanno Schluge, Ray Demsky, Heli Putz, Thomas Schermer and Cameron Sylvester whose kept
the spirits high even in darker times.
Schluge and me managed to realise a cool first ascent as the locals confirmed.
The 6 pitches long route is called Stuorraniibi (Sami Knife) and we rated it WI6,
M7. The protection is clean. What I really like on this climb is that we didn´t
left any traces from our ascent. The rock is sometimes loose but with some
alpine experience you can enjoy the climb. A king line.
So now the photo project is online with unique pictures and a short clip of the trip.
big project has two sides; on one side there is happiness satisfaction. On the
other side something that dominates your thoughts, your feelings and your daily
routine disappears. You feel empty.
And what is
after the emptiness? Another thing you will invest your energy, your emotions,
your thoughts. Should we call it stupid or nonsense?
