Iceland Dispatch #2: A little work, a little play, a whole lot of sun

The RfR seminar in Iceland is in full swing. Recent exercises have included some moderate slope work as well as pickoffs.  And included in the rigging was a Petzl Goulotte piolet used as a pre-tension front tie - sweet!

Not to worry, Mike and the guys from ICE-SAR are finding time to relax, including a boat ride to Skrúður Island, home to a massive puffin colony and an extensive cave system.

The beautiful weather continues...do they even have sunscreen in Iceland?
