The crowning jewel in Rjukan. The honey yellow color of the ice that gives this ultra-classic its name, is what has attracted many climbers to Telemark. Lipton is still wild and offers adventure to all who attempt to climb it.

Getting There 

Use teh main approach down the gully from the top parking. At the base of the gully head right into the amphitheater at the end of the gorge.
