Mina, on her second visit to the Hanshallaren Cave this summer, yesterday successfully redpointed the monstrously overhanging c.50m long Nordic Plumber (F8c). Mina’s original trip was intended as a part bouldering part route climbing trip but the poor Norwegian weather meant that she was attracted more to the Hanshallaren Cave and as a consequence became embroiled with the Nordic Plumber. She returned for a second time to continue workiing on Nordic Plumber and successfully redpointed it yesterday as her trip was coming to an end.

Originally climbed by Ethan Pringle in 2012, Nordic Plumber links the starting section of Nordic Flower into the upper section of Adam Ondras Thor’s Hammer (F9a+).
