Salt er rute* WI3
["Salt er rute" in Rjukan's Lower Gorge in extremely fat condition. (Not in Heavy Water; ~55m, WI3.), 2 kb]30m. Half way between Camillas Foss and Swiss Army, on the Camillas Foss side of the gorge. Route is slightly hidden in the trees. Easy grade 1/2 ice to climb up 10 metres into a flat area/basin full of boulders. At the back of this there is a steep icefall of about 15 metres height or so. WI3 seems to be the consensus.

This was a great route. We thought it was WI3. I belayed behind the fallen tree as a lot of ice was pelted at me andit was a good place to dodge as ice wouldbounce off the tree rather than me.It was a balmy 1 oC on the day we climbed this. Wickid route and a near full length of 60 m ropes.
