This is an excellent ice crag for new beginners and those looking to head out on their first ice leads. It is described briefly in the guidebook for the Trolla location, but to remove vagueness and add a location map the icefall has been named after the area it is situated in. (Also a present Bus stop)
Three prominent routes are available for picking with 5 different ending variants; a short left side variation which may pose an awkward top out, a 25m direct route up the icefall going at WI2+ ending in a short and steep top. Both of these lines pose the option of a mixed finish up a short narrow dihedral. A 25m right side route which provides two mixed top out variations, also taking a grade of WI2+ and a tricky, tree infested top out.
Routes have been named purely for fun! As 'Left' and 'Right Variants' for ice lines is becoming a little boring.
No access issues with regards to climbing here and the icefall is very close to the road providing easy access and can be observed through the trees.
Parking can be found on the small driveway en-route to the ice, although this is private and best avoided.
Alternatively the ice can be passed, as with the Bynesveien roadside icefall, then by taking the Brænnebukta turn off (officially a foot/bike path but can be accessed so far) drive a little way, park near the house. Walk up the designated footpath to just opposite the driveway (By the Brænne bus stop) on the far side of the road, climb over the barrier, head up the driveway approx 20m then turn left into the trees and uphill to the ice.
Bus Services from Trondheim are the 11 and 75, both stop at the Brænne bus stop.
