Level 3 & 4 Ice Climbing: 7 days – Rjukan, Norway 
27 January – 2 Febuary 2024

Instructors: Lars Bukkehave, Rasmus Klok & to be announced
Language: Danish, norwegian and english
7.500 DKK

Arrival afternoon/night 26 January

All participants need to have done a multi pitch ice climbing course (level 2), to join the level 3-4 trip.

Rjukan offers some great ice climbing options both single pitches and a lot of multi pitch. We will play around with mix and dry tool climbing. Also since we start to go more into the backcountry there will also be some avalanche lessons and drills. If weather allows we will try the magic Gaustatoppen traverse where we need to climb on running belay.

We will refresh all the skills from previously, but add new lays. The focus will be multi pitch climbing and getting more to the backcountry.

We will be 3 instructors, so we will work in small groups so the ratio will always be good.
