Looking for recommendations for areas, routes, and what time of year is the best ice climbing season from anyone who has had ice climbing experience in Iceland. I’m looking for any mixed lines M5 or below and ice lines WI5 and below, but generally just any fun routes/cool locations. If you can give location descriptions, maps, etc. that would also be helpful!
January – February is probably the best time.
There is a database on this web page for most of the ice climbing and mixed climbing routes that have been established in Iceland, the database even has locations pinned on a map. See http://www.isalp.is/en/category/crag
Recommend that you take a look at the database.
