Rockfax Description
3 pitches. Approach from the Vemork Bridge parking by following the path up the Gorge. This one usually has fat ice that leads from the Gorge up to the road. Due to slabby character this waterfall disappears in snowy conditions. There are many possible variations. Descend by walking back down the road. © Rockfax

Andrewquentin 20 Feb 2nd Short walk in from car park. Cold start with a light breez. Two teams already on the ice causing me to learn about ice fall! Billy was leading us in series each on 60m rope with the idea that Alex and I acted as alternative leads under his supervision and lead rope at all times. We put in our own belay stands and ice screws all backed up by Billys. Lots of thinking on this lovely climb.

TheFasting 8 Apr, 2018 AltLd O/S Took a direct route straight up the middle. Unprotectable snow-covered slab for 20 meters on the second pitch, otherwise it was pretty thin at the middle to the top in general. Went two full lengths of 60m ropes to make it 2 pitches, to get home in good time. Didn't get home in good time.
