Heading North

Amundsen statue, Tromso town square

I'm off today to Tromsø today - for once on a plane rather than via 20 hours of driving - my cover is attending a political science conference at the University to discuss far-right populist parties but with the climbing nirvana of Kvaløya just across the bridge, I'm hoping that if the weather holds out, there will be time for some of this:

Dave seconds the crux of Gallionsrute (HVS 5b), Baugen, Kvaløya the evenings. It will be good to be amongst the mountains any way, even if it is mainly the view from a lecture theatre.

Troms Fastland, looking towards Lyngen

So probably no posts until early next week. Have a good one y'all.

Great pictures. I climbed Gallionsruta only 3 weeks ago ;)

Did you think it was hard for the grade? Kvaloya grades seem pretty nails compared to Lofoten!

I haven't any experience of Lofoten, so can't say. Compared to finnish grades I'd say they were rather spot on.
