In January of 2013 I received a phone call from the good people at Mountain Hardwear asking if I would be interested in joining Dawn Glance and Tim Emmett on an ice climbing expedition to Iceland. I answered with a resounding YES. I had only visited the country once before and was very stoked to see more of this beautiful country. 8 weeks later I boarded a series of flights for an unforgettable ice climbing trip in the north western fjords of Ísafjörður. This is a country of vivid color and surprise. We got right to work.
Long approaches were standard, but always beautiful
