Recce in Sordalen
We got up at 04:00 this morning with a vague plan to climb something in Sordalen, a valley southeast of Setermoen that runs south toward the Swedish border. By the time that we had checked out the valley and decided on Skredbekken (a 700m WI5/6) as an objective it was too late to start. So the plan is now to get up tomorrow morning at 01:30 to give us the chance to do the approach and first easy pitches in the dark.
This is going to be a massive day, in a par with Polar Circus or even longer. We are going to spend the rest of day resting, eating and drinking lots before bed at 18:00.
