Susses Veil** WI2
[Digging through heaps of snow to find the ice., 1 kb]3 pitches.

Rockfax Description
One or two pitches. More of an 'area' than a 'waterfall'. It is a great venue to learn the basics of ice climbing. The waterfall is wide and can be climbed by several teams at the same time. Beware of falling ice if it is crowded here. © ROCKFAX

UKC Logbook Description
Not a particularly hard climb but beautiful. Two or three pitches depending on conditions. Top pitch becomes hollow once melting begins! Although there is only a shoort walk in from the car park, the route sits quite high on the valley side, over looking the Vermork power station, Vemork Bridge and the head of the valley. Just make sure you take a moment to enjoy the view while you are on the climb, well worth a few photos!
