Not sure which line it was, ice varies every year. There are 6 or 7 routes on this crag and its 5 minutes from the car just off the road up to Gaustablikk, ideal for a morning before heading back to Thorp for the evening flight.

Nice and stepped natural formations

Split the climb into two. To practice a multipitch with hanging belay and v thread. Gav went first and I led the second pitch.

speedymccreedy 04/Feb/13 TR β

4th climb of the day. Great start with good hook placements - useful to use hooks to conserve energy early on - to the LHS of main rib (shoulder width gully-ish. The transition at the top of the steep bit was made harder due to brittle ice and tired arms/legs. By no means a fine performance but a good first taste of WI4
