In March 2015 I traveled with professional climbers Rahel Schelb and Klemen Premrl to explore the possibility of climbing inside the glaciers and on the icebergs found along the southern coast of Iceland. Having only seen pictures on the internet of possible ice caves and floating icebergs in the ice lagoon, we spent a week exploring and pushing the limits of traditional ice climbing.
During one day of exploring we discovered a giant iceberg that had broken off from the glacier. We spent hours watching the ice before we decided it was safe to climb. As the sun went down we noticed that the Northern Lights were visible, so we used our three headlamps to illuminate the climb as well as the shape and color of the iceberg from the inside. With this little bit of light Rahel climbed the face while I snapped photos from below.
