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.

The meeting will be about committing climbs where you have to find your way up and down on your own, little information available.

Approach by boat, Point of departure; at the shore in the morning, picked up in the evening

You will need to bring an adventures spirit, to be independent and self-sufficient, and to be able to find your own objectives.
