Adventure Update from Treacle

Treacle at the Top of Sweden!

162treacle keb

Hello!
What a day!  A very fantastic wonderful, but very tiring day!  I climbed to the very top of Sweden, the top of the mountain Kebnekaise.  It was brilliant, but boy was I tired.  We started off early in the morning and climbed and climbed and climbed.  Steep grassy, steep rocks, steep glacier, steep rock climb, steep rocks, steep glacier ..... summit!  I was given a walking pole, but it was a bit long for me, so I leant it to someone else to use.  :)  The view from the top was really very, very stunning.  The walk down was very long and hard, so I snuck into a rucksack and had a bit of a snooze.  I know that's cheating, but I had done the hard bit!  After 11 and a half hours we were safely down.  Phew!  Boy am I going to sleep well tonight!
