With the weather on our side we headed for a climb in preparation for our 3 day back pack. We all shuffled out with crampons, snow shoeing, axe, some layers, camera, food, water and loads of sunscreen. The landscape here in Jontunheimen is absolutely stunning, especially when you start to gain height from 1500m to 2000m. We started on foot, then on to show shoes and finally leaving our shoes for crampons to attempt a summit of our first Norwegian 2000m..Brilliant
After a busy May, June hit us with a reminder, June 3rd 29 Beyond Endurance expedition team members decend on Dublin airport. Depart 06.30am Oslo.
All the team where in great form, some arriving with family members. We arrived in Oslo later that day and met with Bjorn on the bus. Driving north a few stops later, travelling through changing landscapes, we arrived in Krosbu Lodge near to Jotunheimen National Park and Glacier, our base for the next week.
The next day after a briefing, we covered snow shoes, ice axe arrest and crampons which we practised a mile away in to the snowy hills.
