Crag features

A wonderful three pitch route and ideal season starter, when in good condition. Offers a fantastic WI3 wide ice slab followed by a 2+/3 middle section and ending in a choice of final pitches from Scottish II snow gullies, multiple lines between WI3+ and 4+, as well as the option for a mixed variation.

Approach notes

Drive South on the E6 from Oppdal into Drivdalen and take the right-hand turn just before Drivstua train station. Cross the tracks and take a left to find a parking place - by the old train shed is ideal.

Walk back towards the farm and follow the road into the farmyard taking the first left, follow this track to the stream coming down Grubekken.

The approach to the ice can be strenuous, especially in deep snow so consider snowshoes and poles, its not an ideal place for skis (skinning) but could be done.

Descent from the route is either by ice if you're unfortunate, or by the long ridge opposite the icefall, avoiding the cornices and steep crags. Follow the ridge down the northern side of the stream to regain the road.

Approach time: 1-2hrs, conditions dependant
