Svingfoss* WI4
[Svingfoss in darkness, 2 kb]

Rockfax Description
Roadside 1 pitch waterfall. This one sees a lot of traffic - no pun intended! It is easy to rig a top rope. Approach time is zero and it is possible to climb at night if you park your car creatively. Lots of variations exist. © ROCKFAX
