Merry Christmas!

I had to share a couple of pictures from today's lovely but quite cold Christmas session! 

It does not get much better than this!
Mirage,  Mörby.  Climbed the problem twice but ice on the top slab made a real ascent impossible. Must return when the ice melts!

A picture says more than a thousand words!

The last couple of months have been great.  Let me illustrate it with some pictures... Life is beautiful!

Life is treating me well

The last weeks have been filled with quite a lot of training. It feels good to spend time in the climbing gym training for future objectives. Yet I am trying to let my body adjust to the increased training load. Therefore, it is fortunate that I also have the opportunity to keep myself active in other ways…

The recent hot weather has maybe not provided the best opportunities for outdoor climbing, but I have managed to visit Flaten a couple of times to climb a few of the classic routes. Nonetheless, I am really looking forward to cooler days... Hopefully it will be a long and dry autumn.

During one of these active rest-periods I went to the Austrian Alps with my girlfriend. It was a very active week involving a lot of hiking and a bit of climbing in the mountains. We had a wonderful time and so much fun! To visit these magnificent places with the people you love creates memories you will never forget.

One of the most exciting things during these last weeks was to receive my International Baccalaureate grades. I was awarded a Bilingual Diploma with 44/45 points - a score achieved by 0.8% of students. I feel very excited and pleased after all the hard work I put in. :D :D

I hope you are all having an equally great summer!

Beginning of summer

I am truly enjoying being done with school as I suddenly have so much time. It feels great to be in the climbing gym without having to think about completing any assignments.  I believe it will be an interesting year with a lot of adventure. But first I need some proper training to get in shape...

The end of an era is here. After finishing three weeks of exams I graduated from International Baccalaureate on Saturday, which feels rather strange since our grades are not published until July. So I am still keeping my fingers crossed that I achieved my predicted scores. Nonetheless, it is a fantastic feeling to be done after many years of hard work, but I will always look back at it as an extremely rewarding and fortunate time in my life. 
I have decided to take a gap year before entering university, so hopefully I will be able to do A LOT of climbing the coming year. I am so excited!! Look out for more frequent post from now on...

Study Time

Time is flying past as the final exams are approaching rapidly! Yet I cannot hinder myself from occasionally drifting away in thoughts about what I will do when I am done. So many ideas!!

The mountains are calling
