Sylarna is a cool zone on the sweden/norway border. I booted up this chute , i call the "doa" of the swedish backcountry.
Here's a couple sunrise photos, on a line I call "the gomache." Bit of inside joke on the name, but highly appropriate. This line is typically locked out 9/10 winters, due to it's mega cornice. Delaney and i managed to crack in. Brad Slack took a few shots, it doesn't really show the gnarl below. Always stoked to drop in so early in the morning.
Tough season on the coast with mega moody weather. Dave B and i went for a pow hunt. It was unfortunately very firm, but it was a beauty day to be out there. Dave B photos
