My first Ice Climbing experience

Ever since I moved to Norway, I promised myself that I will learn new sports whenever opportunity arises. Being an avid mountaineer, I never really considered ice climbing as something I would look up to. Yet, when I saw that one of my favorite outdoor brands is organising an Ice Climbing trip, I got intrigued. Knowing that I could learn and practice from the best in the business (Norrona’s brand ambassadors: Matthias Scherer and Tanja Schmit) I made up my mind. Two weeks after submitting my application I found myself in Rjukan, a small Norwegian town located 3 hours drive away from Oslo, and so the adventure began.

My Relationship With Nature

As my life has evolved, so has my relationship to nature. I’ve been living in different places and I’ve been in different phases of my life, but nature’s always been there in one way or another. I’m Oscar Frick, and my life’s been a journey taking me from the deep forests of southern Sweden, through the big city life before coming out the other side having figured out that among the mountains is where I belong.
