Fossekjerringa -

First ascent: Øyvind Moss, 1997
By: Elio Bonfanti
Area: Norway, Group: Rjukan, Country: Norway, Region: Sørlandet

Very beautiful icefall with a steep start: pay particular attention here if the ice is thin.

GETTING THERE

From Rijukan drive down the first road which from the #37 - heading towards "Norsk industrialbeidermuseum" - leads to some houses located beneath the obvious drips.

ACCESS

Park as best possible and continue on foot, past some private houses (ask for permission). Walk for circa 30 minutes to reach the icefalls on the right.

ROUTE

P1: Climb up the middle of the compact vertical wall 85° then 90° to where this finished on a wide ledge. Continue directly to a tree, belay.
P2: Climbing directly up from the belay and via easy 75° climbing reach the top of the icefall.

DESCENT

Abseil down the icefall.

GEAR

Two 60m ropes, full ice climbing rack
