Trappfoss*** WI4
[Trappfoss, 2 kb]

Rockfax Description
Three or four pitches. The broad waterfall to the right of Juvs°yla is impossible to miss. Start in the same chimney as Juvs°yla but belay where the ramp formation on Trappfoss branches off to the right. Follow this ramp for a long pitch to a belay. Continue up steep ice to a belay on a ledge. Follow more ledges to the top. Descend either by walking off or abseil from drilled ice anchors. © ROCKFAX

Great route. I led pitch 2. Glen led 1 and 3.
gavinpeach - AltLd O/S - 05/Mar/15 with Glen Dickson

After a small solo to the belay ledge. Led pitch 1 and 3. 1 felt like a scottish winter grade 2 with lots of Neve. Belay point with piton and tat under a ledge is just passed 60 metres! Was able to come off the belay from one rope and stretch out the second rope. Lower v thread advisable. Gav led 2nd pitch. Good sustained 30 metre pitch with exposed position. 3rd pitch steep at the start and eases off to the top up a snow ramp to some trees. 45 metres. Beautiful position, good views. 4 abseils down to the valley.

Pumpy as, glad Matt lead the middle pitch. Ice was pretty wet and a bit sketchy at the top. Walked off and hitched back to vermork to retrieve bags - don't do it. Take 2-3 lengths of tat and ab off

Indifferent ice. A little stepped so felt pretty steady for the grade. A bit thin at the top where the angle eases back.

annak - AltLd O/S - 24/Jan/15 with Lee Harrison

Returned to retrieve gear from yesterday's truncated attempt. Led P1 and P2. P3 was covered deep in powder snow so abseiled off an Abalakov at the end of P2 and down climbed P1 (again).
Pete_Frost - Lead G/U - 20/Jan/15

Led P1. Dave led P2 until his left axe ripped out of rotten ice just short of the belay and he sprained his ankle in the subsequent fall. I down climbed P1 after lowering Dave and helped him on a long, painful hop down the gorge to the car.
Pete_Frost - AltLd dnf - 19/Jan/15 with David Hayward

In 4 and a bit pitches (ramp pitch was about 70m so had to pitch up to the peg separately). Led the ramp (very thin) and the crux wall after the peg. Gear was suspect but luckily the ice provided good hooks.

Pink pointed second pitch with gear placed by Alex. Scary as fuck. Most scared i've been on any climb in my life!

Gwyneth - 2nd - 20/Feb/10 with Stewart

P1 and 3(last). Horrible deep powder on all the easier angled ledges, over rotten ice. Gear very questionable the entire way. Very bad condition.

wow. felt strenuous, but tremendous. a fantastic end to the week. followed another team up, as a result spent the first ten minutes at the belay ducking falling ice.
pebbles - 2nd - 13/Mar/09 with guido

Solo up 1st pitch, covered in deep snow. Rob 1st pitch, steep & brittle. Me 2nd, more amenable.
KeithW - AltLd O/S - 11/Mar/09 with Lithos

P1 snow slope plod, led P2 - great up faint groove to snowed up ledge and poor ice at belay - and much messing about with only 1 screw, drilling anchors. Keith led P3, Easy ab down to right (when looking in) off the main line to trees, then 50m to top of snow slope.
