Jim: 1 screw, half a Norwegian energy bar (dropped while climbing)
Nick: 1 screw (climbing) plus 1 screw and 1 axe (walking off)
All retrieved apart from the energy bar - presumably taken by a Norwegian mountain shrew

The plan for today was to have a crack at what we expected to be hardest climb of the trip, Hydnefossen, a great sheet of ice above Hemsedal.
We packed our bags the night before. Alarms were set for 4:30. But in the morning Nick put his head around the door and said, "if we do the climb tomorrow instead, we could go back to sleep!" I readily agreed.
So, another rest day.
I read Ender's Game then we watched the film. The book is better.
I dared Nick to go and sit on the village jetty in his dressing gown. He didn't hesitate.
