Climbing Above the Norwegian Sea
Mountain guide Caroline George has developed a relationship with Scandanavia. She's become a superfan of a region known for its stark topography, wilderness ethic, stunning fjords and Viking heritage. Her latest trip was to big walls near the Arctic Circle above the Lofoten archipelago in Norway's extreme north.
Pulling the crux on Similarillon (grade 7) on Gandalf In Henningsvaer, a small fishing village in Lofoten archipelago.
Rope coiling atop Gandalf face with village of Henningsvaer seen among open sea and sheltered coves in the distance.
"This was my third time in Lofoten this year and each time charmed me equally."
