Pete woke up this morning another year older, but definitely not another year wiser. He was tasked with wearing his birthday hat all day, so he decided not to take on the world class WI7 challenge (Lipton) on his tick list today – that requires serious head gear! Instead we were to take on an adventure at Kong Vinter.
This proved to be a genius plan as the weather had turned warmer, so the constant precipitation that was wet in Rjukan remained frozen at Kong Vinter.
After a 20 minute trek we made our way through thick snow to the abseil tree where we geared up and Andy set up the ropes. Pete had an “awesome” time on King Kong, and Anna and Ian and Jon and Andy had a great adventure on Kong Vinter. This was supposed to be the classic of the area, but the conditions weren’t so great this time round. King Kong was steep and fearsome with some crazy mushrooms to navigate around the bottom.
By the time we’d finished the route the sun had come out giving great views back across to the routes.
