Tóti Afi WI 3

Route number B5.

East part of Kötlugróf has a small tight gully with a fun ice route. The route varies a lot depending on how much ice is in the route and can the upper part be challenging. In the top part there sometimes forms a large umbrella, that can be challenging. In the middle of the route, there is the option of placing a nice cam in a crack to the side. Can be nice to have 1-2 short screws. The route is 40m and above there is a rock that can be used for belay, but a snowseat is also possible. The big gully easy of Kötlugróf is good for decent.

Dúna Amma WI 3

Route number B1.

At the east side of Kötlugróf is a nice ice route with a good approach for Múlafjall.

The route is hardest for the first 20 m and after that is pretty easy to the top. There is not a lot of options for protection at the top, so a snow seat is an option. Total length is about 45m.

Big gully to the east is good for decent.

Sótanautur WI 3+

Route number B7.

The route starts quite hard (15m) and then there is a steep ice slope up to the left to the final part that is steep and fun. Total length is 45m.

There is a big rock at the top for belay but it might be nice to backup.

The name Sótanautur comes from a ring that was described in Harðar saga. It is believed that the ring was hidden right below this area.

Drjúpandi WI 3

Route number B9.

Drjúpandi starts with a 10m waterfall up to a snow slope that leads to the main section. You climb all the way to the rockface where there are big umbrellas and icicles. Total length 50m.

Great route for beginers because you can traverse to the left where the route is easier. Decent is on a V-thread.
