Route name: To Be Continued…

Grade and length: WI 4 – 40 meters

Date of first ascent: 21/12 2011

Climbers: Óskar Arason and Einar R. Sigurðsson

Area: Hlaupárgil in Stigárdal in Öræfi in southeast Iceland.

Location: The route is about 50 meters left/south of The Running Year Day Route in the gorge that we call Hlaupárgil, in middle of Stigárdalur. There is another steeper pitch higher up, but since we had quite wet conditions we decided to save that for later climbers. It will be worth it though.

Description: The first part of the route started out very vertical for few meters. The upper part was easy. After 40 meters of climbing I could walk up to big ice slabs to make a belay.
