Sunday 15th February

Boy Wonder and i were out in Rjukan (Norway) from tuesday to friday and then i was out in the Ben Lawers area yetsterday.

In Rjukan we climbed Nye Vermokfoss, Sabotorfossen, Trapfoss, Verdens End and Tjonnstadbergfossen.  We found excellent conditions in the main, with some brittle ice due to the very low temperatures (-18.5 deg C one morning).

Yesterday i was out in Coire Odhar near Ben Lawers with Peter, Andrew, Jill and Jane looking at winter skills.  There was still good snow cover and it would be possible to ski tour from the visitor centre car park.

Adam, Alan and Colin climbed Arrow Chimney on Meall Nan Tarmachan finding good conditions and proposing a grade of IV 3 in the current conditions.
