Ice climbing at Trängslet and Klövsjön

During the winter season of 2008/2009 I joined up with a bunch of ice climbers for a few trips to Trängslet and Klövsjön.
I'm glad I met them because this season I climbed more ice than I've climbed in all previous years combined.
I have named the photographer for each photo except for photos taken by me.

My first trip to Trängslet and this is the first ice on the menu, a 60 meter WI2. Photo by Joakim Niklasson.

Back at Trängslet for my fourth ice trip of the season. This time with Per (in photo) and Andreas.

It's a nice climb this one.

It sees a lot of traffic though.
