Gallery: Rovaniemi 2010

I added in the gallery section a few photos from last June in Rovaniemi (featuring the "Londonians" JP and Caroline). I'll keep filling this album as I get further in the photo process.


Tomorrow is the day for departure on a big hike at the northern end of Cumberland Sound. It's been such a busy weekend that we are really looking forward to getting out of here and chilling somewhere where we can't worry about anything because it's not there to worry about. And there's plenty of nothing to worry about there.

I don't think we'll be accumulating a lot of kilometers this time - it would be nice simply to find a few cool spots and stay at them for as long as we feel like, enjoy the camp life, do some bouldering and fishing, scramble some hills in the evenings.

This change in hiking strategy actually stems from the big realization that hiking is just a fancy word for walking. "Hey, let's go walk for seven days on the tundra." Neh,

On another note, my boulder climbing project here in Pang, my nemesis, is still unbeatable. I've worked through it's three sections individually but need 300 % more effort to link them. It's all overhanging an no footholds except the roof edge (in other words, heel-hooks all the way). I'm waiting for the day when I surprise myself and do two sectors in a row. According to my calculcations, that will be around 2017. But I've upped my frequency at the rock and hope to do that this year. The rock is probably 7something on French bouldering grade, maybe 7a or 7a+. Could be less. I don't have anything to compare it to. The route will be called Eesti Aerobic.
