Multi pitch ice climbing on Fabrikkfossen.

Jan 06, 2015

Today we went up to Fabrikkfossen above the village. After the usual scrattle up through the trees for half an hour we found a decent way onto the route. Once on it was nice climbing all the way and perfect ice for Ian to do some leading and look at ropework and stance management. The route is nice ice all the way, only slightly drippy in places. The top pitches are in great nick. Its a good route to get on before there is too much snow in the valley, when it tends to bank out and get buried.
