Ice Climbing- Conquering Rjukan one Hook at a Time

Sat in the office, struggling to concentrate. Wish I was back, cold, scared and in pain ice climbing in Norway! #norge #ice #iceclimbing #rjukan #adventure #explore #exploration #jcxplore #pushyourself Photo by @nessgriffiths

I’ll be the one cheering for them with coffee in hand once they’ve come down the mountain, happy and very impressed at their effort.
