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
