Rjukan Upper Gorge


Terry had a plan. It had to be secret, because there is only room for two teams. A quick exchange of texts and we agreed to meet at 9.30-ish. Me and Pete were going to climb Nye Vermorkfoss, and Terry and Bernie were going to climb Bakveien.

Two lines at the Upper Gorge that start at the same place, diverge in the middle and the meet after the second pitch for a nice finish up to the Museum.Luckily for us, no one had beaten us to it, so we had the routes to ourselves. I let Pete do the hard bit, but I had great fun on the first and last pitch. 🙂
