Sjo Tarn

Expedition Climbing In Norway
07 Sep 2017

Climbing in Norway in mid-summer is a reminder that this a special place. With endless daylight and a seemingly never ending tick list of climbs to top out on, Eddie Bauer Guide Caroline George alongside Eddie Bauer Climber Katie Lambert reunite to find joy in the high places, satisfaction in the crisp rock and beauty in the sea and towers that ring Lofoten. This is Sol Tarn.

CAROLINE GEORGE

Eddie Bauer Alpine Climbing Guide (IFMGA)

For more than a decade, Caroline George has lived for the vertical dimension, tackling some of the hardest ice and mixed routes. Raised by climbing parents, George followed in their footsteps by sharpening her skills in the Swiss Alps, then earned her guiding certs in the male-dominated ranks in a profession steeped in alpine tradition. A true working guide, she has also participated in an impressive tick list of climbing expeditions that have taken her from Mt. Vinson, Antarctica, to the deeply carved fjords of Norway.
