Winter Climbing Meeting in Lofoten 28/2 - 6/3, 2011
Norsk Tindeklub invites you to a climbing meeting in Lofoten with the purpose of going back to the roots of alpine climbing: new routes, no route descriptions, good friends and poor visibility. If lucky; good Scottish conditions, if unlucky; just conditions. The Alpine award and the climbing stipends of NTK will also be awarded during the meeting.
