We got up in the morning and realised that we were 0,004mm higher than the previous night! After a heavy dose of Diamox, we packed up and drove to Skuleberget.
Now I know what your saying, what the %#!¤½ is Skuleberget?!?!
It is the site of Sweden's highest 'Via Ferrata'... and just up the road from the High Coast, so it's getting higher!!!
This is an unique type of rock climbing, where you are always attached to the rock via a safety cord to thick metal cables
It means that you can get very high off the ground, very safely.
It was a great climb, and despite only being 300 vertical meters, it still took us about 2½ hours to get up.
It was a climb of smiles and tears, adreneline and exhaustion... but we made it!
What would you do after a long day outside in the sun?
Your hot and sweaty and the tempreature is pushing 25C?
-- Well if your Swede you drop your dacks and jump inot the nearest lake (there are about 96,000 lakes in Sweden so your never far from one)... this Brastralian after some coaxing decided that when in Sweden, do as the Swedes do...
Enjoy the pics!!!
