Without really going home we’ve moved on from mountaineering in Wester Ross to ice climbing in Norway on our Rjukan Ice Climbing Week. Me, Rob and our quartet of ice climbers have started the week at a place neither of us had visited before, the ice falls in the gorge at Alset. It was a great place to start really with some easy angled short routes to warm up on and then moving a little downstream some steeper ice to practice newly acquired technique on.  With a basis of skills established we should now be set up nicely for the rest of the week.
