This trip report is a video of my attempt to solo Stetind last week, a beautiful mountain in my country Norway. The climb is not hard, up to 6b, but the rock is amazing, pure and solid. And the place is very scenic, with the mountain raising straight from the fjord. Very nice climb.

You may think I'm crazy where I'm without rope, it's just a safety technique to move fast on easy pitches and not spend more time on the wall than necessary to avoid getting caught in the dark or bad weather midways, which was really good I used on this climb. And when free soloing, you climb well within your margins, so that you know you can't fall.

It shows that even though weather forecast looks good, it's important to always be prepared for the worst. I knew there was an escape ledge 2 pithces up, and went for that instead of 10-20 rapells into the clouds, depending if I find the right route down in low visibility.

Sorry for any bad editing. Not easy with a GoPro camera, best if you turn on 720p. Here's the video:
