Rjukan, Day 1 in Krokan

Great first day in Rjukan with both our teams climbing 7 routes in the Krokan Gorge up to WI5 and all 3 star routes. Most routes are well trafficed and conditions are fairly good, the routes have dried up with the temperature hovering around freezing all day. Heading for the Upper Gorge area tomorrow for some multi pitch routes…

Mark Rock Climbing Course

‘Having spend three days in the mountains with Paddy I’ve got to say he’s the best guide I’ve ever worked with. Everything was pitched perfectly for my individual level - the choice of climbs, the balance between learning and mileage on the crag, all suited my level of experience. In three days I went from never having climbed trad to leading VD, seconding HVS+ and ticking off a classic mountain route, all thanks to Paddy’s professionalism and enthusiasm. Can’t wait to get out there again!’
