Ice climbing premiere at Källsberget
Having a day back home I felt like I had to check the ice conditions at Källsberget outside of Älvsbyn, Sweden. It’s not a great place to start with, but I was really keen to use the tools again. Last time I was ice climbing was on the Shield of Huascaran, so this time it felt kind of small.
I started up soloing the normal route that is around grade 3+, and then thought I clog the vertical section on the upper part of the icefall. But as it was really thin and wet the clogger did not really work. So after three laps of semi soloing this part I went home again, happy to have started the ice climbing season back home.
