3 pitches.

Rockfax Description
1 or 2 pitches. More of an 'area' than a 'waterfall'. It is a great venue to learn the basics of ice climbing. The waterfall is wide and can be climbed by several teams at the same time. Beware of falling ice if it is crowded here. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Not a particularly hard climb but beautiful. Two or three pitches depending on conditions. Top pitch becomes hollow once melting begins! Although there is only a shoort walk in from the car park, the route sits quite high on the valley side, over looking the Vermork power station, Vemork Bridge and the head of the valley. Just make sure you take a moment to enjoy the view while you are on the climb, well worth a few photos!

Left-hand/main line. Dave led the meat, I got the veg (as a veggie, that was fine!)

buxtoncoffeelover 11/Feb/17 2nd

Left-hand line up the fall to the right. Overnight snow caused some difficulty, & it was very wet & quite slushy ice as temperature rose
