StorskardåsenMidtre Gauldal, NORWAY
Climbs 1 – Rocktype Ice – Altitude 300m a.s.l – Faces W
Whilst mostly holding a grade of WI3/3+, there is plenty of variation to be made that can please the masses. The ice lends itself to two good pitches of climbing, with plenty of trees to belay/descend from at the top.

No access issues with climbing here.
Directions from Trondheim:
Drive south on the E6 to Støren. Continue approximately 6km past the large main junction to the south of Støren, (the ice can be seen from the E6 after a little way, continue past) turn left to cross the single lane bride on the Fv631.
Park just after the bridge in a small lay by and walk up the road approx 45m. Turn left onto a track which goes directly up to where the ice can be seen. Nb. Keep to the right hand track at the junction as the left drops down to the river.
Once below the ice on the track (there is a prominent open space, presumably a car park in the summer), climb upwards through the pine trees to the right hand side, then head to the left towards the ice when it flattens out. This is a steeper way to begin with, but during times of heavy snow is much easier. Going direct though the middle provides waist deep snow, though a very uneven boulder field and the potential of a broken ankle.
Skis or snow shoes are highly recommended for the walk in up the track as knee deep snow is not uncommon and the track is not ploughed.
