Any splitboarder-climbers based in or around Oslo, Norway?
Looking for a partner wanting to hook up and get fit before winter sets in and then hit areas like Jotunheimen hard Well...semi-hard, I'm not that hard-core and I'm very safety concious. But I like being out in the mountains with my board
I'm particularly well know in Jotunheimen/Hurrungane, I have a solid climbing background (ice, rock, glacier and summer alpine), and have been riding snowboards since 1995.
Want to be doing more winter alpine climbing/mountaineering, in combo with splitboard ascents/descents. There are a ton of firsts waiting to be done...

I'm based in Oslo and will try to do as much splitting as I can this season (when conditions are good). I don't do Ice-or alpine climbing but I sportclimb and boulder a LOT. I can handle a rope, slings and all that stuff.
Been riding since -90, but just had daughter so this season will be a little different I imagine. Anyways, I'm keen on anything but prefer to ride in the resorts when conditions are s**t. I don't like walking/ climbing/ splitting to the degree that I can justify a 5 hour hike, just to slide down on ice/ hardpack.
