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.

gavinpeach 06/Mar/15 AltLd O/S

Led pitch 2. Nice climbing up the iced up chimney and an interesting first pitch. After the chimney slushy ice and snow with better ice higher up. Abseiled back down Sabotorfossen which had deteriorated since tuesday. Lots more rock visible on pitch 2 and more steps on pitch 3.

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.
