[Deep in the Upper Gorge, Rjukan - A stark world of white on black., 3 kb]

Rockfax Description
Two pitches. Located in a chimney deep in the Upper Gorge. Start up the first pitch on fairly easy snowy terrain. The second pitch offers varied steep ice climbing. The waterfall ends in the middle of the wall so drill ice anchors for the descent. © ROCKFAX

Amazing route, lovely exposure. Slightly ruined by my partner ruining the hanging belay somewhat.
