Description 

Considered the birthplace of modern skiing and ¨Telemark¨ skiing, the district of Telemark has a lot to offer for outdoor enthusiasts. With more than 150 waterfalls Rjukan is definitely the mecca of ice climbing! Think Ouray, Colorado, but better and all natural! Needless to say, there is also some amazing skiing in Telemark, although most of it is back country. In the summer you can enjoy hiking, mountain biking, and river rafting on your rest days. Climbs in this district vary everywhere from seaside cliffs, to high mountain ice climbs, with everything in between.

Although there is no ice on this route it is still a pumpy, athletic classic for the modern mixed climber. Fission has been onsighted at least twice despite the fact that this trad mixed route is the hardest rated route in Rjukan....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
