"A word on the spot is worth a cartload of recollections"
James Maggs, Southwold diarist 1797-1890

Last night Nick, Bent and I had a couple of glasses of wine at Senja Lodge before Rich and Jim arrived at 9pm, wired from the drive from Tromso. So it seemed a good idea to break out the Jameson and Amaretto. We went to bed at midnight after a couple too many and didn't wake up until 9.  

Another day above zero degrees. We drove via Senjahopen and through the tunnel to Ersfjord. The pillar we had spotted up on the right after the tunnel seemed a bit scary in the warm temperatures so we parked the car across the fjord And walked in our snowshoes up to what looked to be a short and quite easy climb. As always it proved both longer and harder than it looked (120m, first pitch WI3, the second a streaming WI4+). A good climb.
