I am lucky enough to be heading out to Rjukan in Norway for 7 days at the start of February. At the moment every spare second is being spent preparing and training for it. I will be heading out with my Girlfriend, who, other than a summer alpine trip has no experience of ice or snow. As well as being apprehensive of the task in hand I am also extremely excited both by sharing such and experience with someone so special but also the opportunity for me to teach and develop an individual in such an amazing and extreme environment.
As the trip approaches I will be posting about the preparation and the journey I'm on.
