Crag features

Excellent training crag for ice and mixed climbing. 30 routes from WI4 to WI6. Bolted mixed to M10. The ice can form a little differently every year.

Approach notes

2km north of Gol. Follow the road from Gol centre to Golsjuvet. At the first right-hand hairpin take the left turn down a single track road. Follow this for 1.5km running along the river. You can see the ice through the trees just before the parking area on right side of road.

The access road is a toll road, 30kr payable slightly north of the parking. Display your ticket. Money goes towards plowing the road and carpark.

Approach time: 5 mins

Make sure the river ice is sufficiently frozen. There have been fatalities from people falling through the ice and then being swept away by the strong currents.

Also note any warnings around the carpark about the river getting flooded (this has also caused fatalities in the past). Don't climb here if there are such warnings posted!
