Climbs at this crag
Alike Botneheia further along the coast of Sassenfjord, Criocerasaksla is within management zone 10 and outside of any nature reserves so access to the mountain is available to all.
Popular summer methods of access are via guided polarsirkel, canoe or by foot from Longyearbyen, either by following the coast or short-cutting through Hanaskogdalen.
In winter access is suitable only via dog-sled, snowmobile (approved snowmobile tracks pass the mountain on their way to Vindodden) or by ski.
More exotic methods of access, like much of Svalbard include cruise ships (either commercial or private hire) or helicopter.
