Topic - Fabrikfossen - Rjukan. Ice Screw lost.

STWright - on 06 Feb 2013
Just finished a week in Rjukan and the conditions are excellent. Fabrikfossen is in fantastic nick. Plastic ice in the middle and bomber ice left and right for protection and belays. If anyone is going up or being up lately, I managed to lose a BD ice screw so would love it back if it's found!

A lot of the climbs are climbing a little harder than the guidebook grades. Talking to a group who have climbed in Rjukan before they told me that some of the climbs were steeper than usual.

Krokan has fat ice everywhere yet Ozzimosis is a little wet in places and not very pleasant to climb.

Lipton has touched down but I only saw it from the road above the gorge. Juvsoya also looked fat as did all the climbs in the upper and lower gorge.

The climbs I climbed above Rjukan were all good and on all I found excellent ice.

Overall a mega week but just be aware that some climbs are a little harder at the moment.
