I have never touched an ice axe (until recently when a nice postman knocked my door and handed me a brown package full of gear goodies!) but when I get fixated with something, things tend to move quite fast. I’ve already ordered myself these ice climbing goods and I’ll be doing my ice climbing course next week on the 26th.
Practice makes perfect so I started to plan some ice climbing trips as well and luckily Finland has some good spots.
1.3 to 5.3 I’m at the famous Korouoma located in Northern Lapland. I snapped the video below from Adventure Partners website which pretty much shows why Korouoma is a great place to go ice climbing. I’ll be accompanied with @LinonXtreme and @JuhoKnuuttila
By the way, twitter is amazing – meet likeminded people and just start planning amazing climbing trips with them!
