After climbing the east peak of Torfinnstind the day before, we had yet another beautiful day, biking across the mountain Heirsnosi above Øvre Årdal. We did not find the trail, but surprisingly we did spend quite some time on the seat of our bikes anyway.

Leaving the fog in Oslo and Kongsberg behind, Telemark is showing us the front side.
With no wind and the warm sun above, Perry is working the tan.
Even if the snow pack is retracting, the couloirs are pretty good.
After making it through the boulder garden, Perry is opening up the turns, and is really excited about the new swords.

After the leg-burning intro on Seltun, we walked in the valley of Utla to check out the waterfall of Vettisfossen, 274 m.
It is quite an impressive place, when you turn the corner of the gigantic notch and you see the frozen waterfall plastered to the rock wall above. Unfortunately we were a few weeks to late for our mission.

This is the last day of our annual early season ice climbing trip. Setesdal proved to be a great place to go ice climb. And we have had a very nice stay at Reiårsfossen Camp. This morning William helped us out by bringing the boat, so we could row to our climb of the day. Excellent service
The 10 minutes of rowing, saved us the hour and a half of hiking along the riverside of Otra.
250 m of climbing up ahead. That adds up to 1100 meters of ice climbing in 4 days.
With a fairly high density of frozen waterfalls, Setesdal is a great place with a variety of climbs and short approaches.
How did we manage before we started using a down- or micro loft jacket at the belay, …..brrrr
The last part of the head wall was dripping wet. It is an experience when the pouring water enters in through the sleeves of the jacket and ends up in your boots.
Thanks Thomas for a fantastic ice climbing weekend!

After scouting out the ice falls in the southbound direction, plans were changed on the fly. I love rest days
Exciting and magnificent terrain. Closing in on the top wall of Rysefossen.
Thomas is braking trail.
Returning back down the same way we climbed up.

With a temperature difference of 15 degrees from the day before, all worries were pushed aside and Thomas is attacking head on.

The ice went from dry to very wet in a few steps. But we stayed high and dry
Lunch brake with the best view!
A few hundred meters more of climbing, and then the 3 hour walk out. An eight hour round trip – Beautiful
