Please refrain from climbing outside

Due to the ongoing spread of Covid-19, please abstain from climbing outside.

At UKC we are all climbers and we understand the strong urge to be outdoors as the weather is finally improving, but we feel this is no longer socially acceptable. You can read our statement here.

We have suspended the UKC Logbooks Top Ascents and Conditions pages and we will no longer accept ascents dated from 23rd March onwards. You can still upload your historic ascents.

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 is negligible.
