East Ridge of Hustinden (691m), Lofoten, Norway, 2nd April 2012

We’ve finally got a little variation on the theme……… We went to bed and it was snowing and we woke up and it was snowing. What is going on? I don’t think it could really get much better than this … Continue reading

Loftet (2170m), Norway, 20th January 2012

I headed up to Jotunheimen again with old friend, Jørgen, in the hope of finding an improvement in conditions to be able to ski something a little more interesting further in the Leirdalen valley. As the road is closed for … Continue reading

Road Trip – Isfjorden/Jotunheimen- Norway – 28th to 30th December 2011

The first post of the new season and it’s a bit of a wishy washy one to be honest. Failed attempts on a couple of peaks, bad conditions but a great three days away nonetheless. I’ve decided to call a … Continue reading

Store Smørstabbtinden (2208m), Norway, 30th April 2011

Back to some relatively higher mountains, if only in altitude, after a great week in Lofoten a few weeks ago. I saw this mountain driving back from a litte session of splitboarding at the end of last year (click here) … Continue reading

South West Shoulder of Ristinden (862m), Lofoten, Norway, 24th April 2011

This is an absolute stunner. Another peak you can gaze at while sipping on your coffee in Leknes. There’s a steep couloir straight down the middle (for another time, ski buddy required), skiing the ridge all the way down or … Continue reading

Guratinden (581m) – Bulitinden (5??m) Traverse, Lofoten, Norway, 23 April 2011

Or at least that’s what I called it. This little mountain is right on the doorstep to Leknes and you can see it from the parking lot of the shopping centre. It’s pretty much West-North-West facing. The couloir on Bulitinden … Continue reading

South Couloir, Stornappstind (740m), Lofoten, Norway, 20th April 2011

I’m probably pushing the point here a bit having already posted about this mountain yesterday (click here if you’re interested) but I got some nice photos today which was an achievement considering the changeable weather here, so I thought I’d … Continue reading

West Face of Stornappstind (740m), Lofoten, Norway, 19th April 2011

I thought I would get this post out on the day, if only because you are the only other person in Lofoten wondering what the conditions are going to be like when you go up Stornappstinden tomorrow….. And you happen … Continue reading

Val Mesdi (2950m), Dolomites, Italy, 19th February 2011

Val Mesdi…… Wow!! What can I say about this one. Pretty bloody amazing to be honest. It has got to be an absolute classic in the Dolomites and definitely a jaw-dropper from start to finish. Thank God there were no … Continue reading
