Rjukan, Norway

Ice Climbing 2014 Digital Catalog

In southern Norway sits the town of Rjukan, a place whose history lies in the waterfalls that tumble from its cliffs. Each winter an abundance of ice routes form, and every spring the lines thaw, powering hydroelectricity stations until the '90s. Now that the stations have closed their doors, the ice climbers of Norway have become the new water energy.
