Avoiding a shower WI 4+

Line nr 3, right side of #44

The approach to this route goes in the same canyon as the route Hrynjandi(in grindagil) but turns left up a steep hill with some small sections of ice. Crampons and ice axes recommended for the approach as it is quite steep(40° – 50°). Takes around 30 minutes to get to the routes from the car. You can park by the side of the road or follow a 4wd track down to the river. Crossing the river on foot should be possible if the river is well frozen and there are some ice bridges.

The route starts up a steep, near vertical ice slab leading into the crux move which is getting up through a small chimney-like feature. Some fun stemming moves there and after that there is a short rest under some massive icicles. Use extreme caution if breaking any of those. The next part is completely vertical until easing off a little at the top. We didn’t top out, instead we made a v-thread and went back down the same way.

The name of the route comes from the fact that the line a little to the right of the route is VERY wet and was attempted first but after getting drenched after placing 2 screws in it we traversed over to this one.

Skyndibiti WI 3

Leið upp Þórufoss í Kjósinni.

Leiðin er eiginlega stök í Kjósinni en fær að fljóta með Grenihlíðar sectornum vegna nálægðar.

15m, WI 3

Leiðin fer upp foss í ágætlega vatnsmikilli á. Því ber að hafa varann á þegar farið er í leiðina og passa að áin sé nægilega vel frosin til að geta gengið á henni.

Leiðin er aðeins 200m frá veg og hentar því einstaklega vel fyrir skreppitúr í létt ísklifur.

Sögusagnir herma að þessi foss hafi verið klifinn fyrir 2019. Engar heimildir finnast hins vegar fyrir því…

Line number 2, on the right side of 44

Same approach as line 3. The route is a bit wandering as to avoid some sections of more difficult ice.

Áslákur WI 4

Leiðin er dálítið norðar í Kjósaskarði en Hrynjandi (#45), í gili sem heitir Strákagil, sést vel frá veginum. Einungis er um 20 mínútna gangur að Ásláki frá bíl, sem gerir hana tilvalda til að skreppa í eftirmiðdagsklifur.
