Description Suggest change

Being one of the easier routes here, it is therefore one of the most popular. A good climb for either beginners or just a warm up. It has some extra bolts up top behind the lip to aid the squeamish in setting up a top rope. But there would be no reason not to lead it since it is so well bolted.

The bottom of the corner is fun stemming past some suspect jugs to a small ledge. The upper half holds a harder than-it-looks crux.

Doesn't really warrant 2 stars, but gets extra credit for the novelty of climbing in Iceland!

Location Suggest change

This is one of the first routes you come to while walking under the cliff on the North side of the river. It is an obvious right facing corner.

Protection Suggest change

bolts and bolt anchor (no rings, but you can grab your draws from the top on your way back to the car)
