Description 

Kerlingareldur (E. Old Womans Fire) is in Svarfaðardalur, in northern Iceland. The climb is reportedly one of the best multi pitch climbs in Iceland.

There are currently at least five videos on Youtube showing the approach (up snow using ski poles and an ice axe) and each pitch (5 pitches total).

Bergmenn Mountain Guides also has a few pictures of the climb on their website(bergmenn.com/en/media/photo-ga....

Presumably, there are other routes in this area as well...
