Rockfax Description
3 pitches. This is a variation to Nye Vemorkfoss sharing its first and last pitches. The middle pitch avoids the free-hanging pillars on the left via a narrow hidden ice chimney. This gives a more balanced climb. Early in the season the second pitch can be rather thin so bring short ice screws and some rock gear. © Rockfax

Led pitch 1 and 3. 1 was quite steep, 3 was easy ground but slightly snowy and thin ice. Gave led pitch 2 up the interesting chimney. Little tricky move around a rock bulge but easy ice up the chimney with bridging up the rock.

Second day of +6C. Water was pouring down the route and pieces of ice were falling down on top of us. In hindsight wasn't wise to climb. Vladimir lead all as we were a three and swapping was faff.

Ran P1 & 2 together because the belay in the cave looked rubbish. Ice in the chimney was great - a rarity, so I'm told. Very pleasant route.

Dill broke a crampn on the second pitch. Wayne and I lowered him off, I downclimbed/lowered to strip the gear. We then finished up the optional lefthand exit which provided a coupole of steep vertical steps.
