We arrived well in Oslo! But there was still a long way to go. We had to wait 1,5h to get a rented car. At the airport we met Daila Ojeda and we drove 6 hours till we reached the meeting point which was only 290km away. Finally we arrived at 2 am and met the rest of the German team, Jule Wurm, Jan Hojer, Christian Popien and Jeremias Groß and got a very nice fishsoop.

In June, Bernd Zangerl (Austria), Justin Hawkins (South Africa), Therese Johansen (Norway), Torstein Eide (Norway) and Belinda Weiss (Austria) were exploring the Norwegian coast up to the Arctic Circle.

I had a couple of projects that i wanted to get done and the rest of the time was spent new routing, which some days turned out to be pretty epic, i.e abseiling down the wrong buttress in the pitch black with no head touch, no fixed anchor points, etc, etc, haha, fun times.
I went to Serre De Piedade yesterday to have another shot at the 'esperanza' project. The one I blogged about a couple weeks ago. The day was surreal- the winds were ferocious and the clouds were thick which gave the whole area an ire/ghostly feeling... I started trying the project which still felt impossible- closer but always very hard...maybe I can't finish this before I leave, I thought... Then, after taking a break and studying the rock I tried something different- to start with my feet in the opposite direction. Immediately it worked and within...
