HEMSEDAL ICE CLIMBING • HEMSEDAL

This year we are venturing north again to the Hemsedal Valdres area, which involves a similar transfer time from Oslo, but has climbing at a wider range of altitudes than Rjukan, giving more reliable conditions when the weather is unseasonably warm. We travel outward on Saturday morning 16th Feb 2019, returning to the UK Saturday 23rd . Flights are possible to Oslo Gardermoen airport from Manchester, London Stansted, and some other regional UK airports (be careful to avoid flying to Oslo Torp or Rygge, as you would need to take a transfer bus/train to Gardermoen). We need to arrive at Oslo Gardermoen airport no later than 5pm on the 16th.

The trip on to Hemsedal by road in a hire car takes around three hours. Sunday to Tuesday are spent on the ice, learning or honing technique at single and multi pitch venues.

Wednesday is usually a day off the ice, to rest and recuperate. For the more energetic it is possible to ski on this day as Hemsedal offers excellent skiing. Time off is weather dependent, so some years we move this day around to make the most of the forecast.

Thursday and Friday we consolidate our new skills climbing multi-pitch ice routes at an appropriate grade. Instructor:client ratio is 1:2 throughout.

Hemsedal offers ice climbing from grade 2 (Scottish grade 3) upwards, with more than 150 routes spread over multiple areas. There is something to suit nearly every ability and aspiration. You don’t need to have climbed ice before but some experience and preparedness for cold outdoor conditions will be helpful, as will hillwalking, basic climbing or scrambling experience in the UK or elsewhere. The trip will be difficult to enjoy if you are very unfit.

​We will be staying at a warm, comfortable chalet in Gol, located just South of the main ice climbing areas, and very close to the Golsjuvet gorge. There is a self-catering kitchen, and we put together a kitty for buying food, and all contribute to the cooking and washing up.

{it}ARRAMPICATA SU GHIACCIO • HEMSEDAL

Quest'anno ci avventuriamo di nuovo verso nord nella zona di Hemsedal Valdres. Partiamo il sabato mattina del 16 febbraio 2019, per tornare nel Regno Unito il sabato 23 febbraio 2019. Dobbiamo arrivare all'aeroporto di Oslo Gardermoen entro le 17:00 del 16.

Il viaggio verso Hemsedal su strada in auto a noleggio dura circa tre ore. Dalla domenica al martedì ci alleniamo sul ghiaccio, imparando o perfezionando la tecnica in luoghi con piazzole singole o multiple.

Il mercoledì è di solito il giorno libero, per riposare e recuperare. Per i più energici è possibile sciare in questo giorno, poiché Hemsedal offre ottime piste da sci.

Giovedì e venerdì rafforziamo le nostre nuove abilità nell'arrampicata su vie di ghiaccio a più tiri con il grado appropriato.

Hemsedal offre arrampicata su ghiaccio a partire dal grado 2 (grado scozzese 3), con più di 150 vie distribuite su più aree. C'è qualcosa che si adatta a quasi tutte le capacità e le ambizioni. Non è necessario aver scalato il ghiaccio prima, ma un po 'di esperienza e preparazione per le condizioni esterne fredde sarà utile, come lo sarà il trekking, l'arrampicata di base o l'esperienza scrambling nel Regno Unito o altrove. Il viaggio sarà difficoltoso se non siete molto in forma.

Alloggeremo in uno chalet caldo e confortevole a Gol, situato appena a sud delle principali aree di arrampicata su ghiaccio e molto vicino alla gola del Golsjuvet.

{de}EISKLETTERN • HEMSEDAL

In diesem Jahr reisen wir wieder nach Norden in das Hemsedal Valdres-Gebiet. Wir reisen am Samstagmorgen, 16. Februar 2019, ab und kehren am Samstag, 23. Februar 2019, nach Großbritannien zurück. Wir müssen am Flughafen Oslo Gardermoen spätestens am 16. Mai um 17 Uhr ankommen.

Die Fahrt mit dem Mietwagen nach Hemsedal dauert etwa drei Stunden. Sonntag bis Dienstag werden auf dem Eis verbracht, um zu lernen oder die Technik an Single- und Mehrseillängentouren zu verbessern.

Mittwoch ist in der Regel ein Ruhetag, um sich auszuruhen und zu erholen. Für die Sportlicheren ist es an diesem Tag möglich, Ski zu fahren, da Hemsedal ein ausgezeichnetes Skigebiet hat.

Donnerstag und Freitag vertiefen wir unsere neuen Fähigkeiten beim Klettern von Multi-Pitch-Eisrouten mit einer geeigneten Schwierigkeitsstufe.

Hemsedal bietet Eisklettern ab Schwierigkeitsgrad 2 (Schottische Schwierigkeitsgrad 3), mit mehr als 150 Routen über mehrere Gebiete verteilt. Es gibt für fast jede Fähigkeit und jeden Anspruch das passende Angebot. Du musst vorher kein Eis geklettert haben, aber etwas Erfahrung und Vorbereitung auf kalte Außenbedingungen sind hilfreich, ebenso wie Wandern, einfaches Klettern oder Klettern in Großbritannien oder anderswo. Die Reise wird schwer zu genießen sein, wenn Sie nicht besonders fit sind.

Wir übernachten in einem warmen, komfortablen Chalet in Gol, südlich der wichtigsten Eisklettergebiete und in unmittelbarer Nähe der Golsjuvet-Schlucht. {/de}
