Video by ZeroSkillz - Nalle Hukkataival has been busy in Norway. The Finnish climber recently returned from a long trip to Norway, during which he climbed and established many hard boulder problems. He spent most of his time in Harbak, Vingsand, and the Lofoten Islands. Since the weather in Lofoten was unstable, raining much of the time, Hukkataival and his crew climbed a lot at night—and in northern Norway, the sun doesn't set during the summer. He filmed many of his ascents from these areas, including this clip of Rough Gem (V13). Below is a short ticklist from the trip:

  • The Diamond (V13, FA)

  • Rough Gem (V13, FA)

  • Straight Outta Hellvika (V12, FA)

  • Fokus (V12, flash)

  • Talib (V12, flash)

  • Three more V12s, six V11s, and seven V10s
