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

These waterfalls lie directly beneath the peak of Gaustatoppen and the trio of climbs under the name Gaustatoppfossen are usually the first in the area to come into condition each year due to their high elevation and shadowy location. Despite this lofty situation above Rjukan, the Gaustatoppenfossene is not very exposed but does have splendid views over Hardangervidda. In contrast, the Høgfoss Area is tremendously exposed even though it is situated lower on the hillside of Gaustatoppen.
