7 pitches.

Rockfax Description
7 pitches. The wide waterfall behind Hydro Gas. The first five pitches are easy ice climbing (grade 2) and it is possible to abseil off from here. This makes the waterfall a possibility for less experienced ice climbers. The two last pitches are considerably steeper. Descend by abseiling from trees. © Rockfax

βeta: Be prepared for sections of steep ice, probably WI3, around pitch 2 and 3, this probably could have be avoided, but we had other teams either side of us so we had to take a central line. The descent is interesting!! sometimes the tress are very spaced (longest is about 32 m).

Lumbering Oaf 12 Mar, 2016 AltLd O/S Ice was pretty solid although there were areas low down where there was a crust of sheet-ice with snow underneath. The sheet-ice would break away when you hit it. Quite dangerous if there are groups/belayer below you. Great route. 6 x 60m abseils back down through pine trees takes awhile.

Chimnastics 12 Mar, 2016 AltLd O/S This waterfall is a monster. Not great conditions, with large amounts off hard eggshell covering sugary snow, covering the good ice underneath. I led P1 and 3. During P3 I was heading up a steep (for WI2) bulge and noticed a prominent horizontal band going across my path. I took care to avoid it with my axes, but then kicked a crampon straight into it, releasing a LOT of water. Then a huge gushing sound from within the fall could be heard. Deeply unsettling, as I was worried the whole thing was going to collapse around me! With only two screws left (enough to make an anchor) a very focused run out followed to get well up over the lip of the bulge to make a belay. Matt ran out of rope on the next pitch, so we simul-climbed, and then moved up again to belay beneath the first WI3 pitch. I took a less steep path around to the tight. Matt quickly despatch the short but steep final pitch. The descent was almost as epic as the climb: abseiling, wading through deep snow. Dark by the time we finished abbing. It took ten hours door to door. A great day, and a good challenge for our level.

Climbed alongside Lee and Ian, who took the conventional 4 pitches to reach our high point. Fantastic route and a bit scary on those hanging belays! Joined our rope to Ian and Lee's and took 3 full abseils, one over a cliff, to get back to the base of the route. It was the icing on the cake to a fantastic last day. Need to come back one day and finish the route, which looked pretty steep towards the top. Pizza and beers awaited!

What a classic! Unfortunately we got stuck behind some slow parties above us, we were moving a fair bit faster. I led to start of P5, where Bob took the lead. At this point Ric got hit in the leg by a large block of ice dislodged by the climbers above. Wasn't sure how bad his leg was, so abbed off in a hurry. I will definitely go back to finish this one.

dgray455 3 Feb, 2009 Lead O/S A 7 pitch 3 star Rjukan classic. This climb is a must do for an easy all day out. Can be done in 5-6 pitches with 70m rope. We did 6 pitches with a short walk to the base of the final steep section on the right(2 pitches). First couple pitches are easy slab ice WI2 with good belays with full conditions. Harder pitches towards the top with several variations up to WI5 in full conditions (finish left). On this accent we finished right with a WI3+ variant. Decent is through the trees which can be done in 5 double 60m abseils. All tree anchors have several slings with abseil rings. The best approach is to start at the power station directly below the climb. Use stairs on the left side of a building and gain access to the trees via a break in the fence at a water drain. Took 8 hours for a team of 2 without swapping leads.
