Sunday, 14 June

Maria Davies Sandbu, who also has done 16 boulders 8A and 8A+, has done her third 8c, Nordic Flower in Flatanger. (c) Martin Mobråten

"Me and my husband Martin were supposed to have 5 months of travelling (before i start my internship as a junior doctor). We were in Spain when the corona-situation really escalated and traveled back to Norway quickly. We built a home-wall in my parent's garage which came very useful as the winter turned out to be very long. In late April we started going to Flatanger for climbing, but it was super cold in the beginning. I was quite hesitant to try hard stuff, and it was only 2 weeks ago I started trying Nordic Flower extension. It turned out to go down quite quickly. I did the first line 2 years ago, and "Nordic Plumber" last year which shares the same start. So I knew the beginning really well. I think I worked the extension part for 3 or 4 days before I started having goes from the start, and then it went down 3.go."
