As an ice climbing venue, Norway's Rjukan valley needs little introduction. With easy access, short approaches and
reliable conditions, it is widely regarded as one of the premier ice climbing destinations in Europe, if not the world.
This guidebook describes more than 200 of the valley's best ice climbs, from the multi-pitch adventures of Mael
and Kong Vinter, and the infamous world-classics of the Upper Gorge, to the floodlit icefalls above the town centre
and the roadside crags of Ozzimosis and Krokan - arguably some of the most famous ice-crags on the planet.
Along with full background and historical information, the guide covers all of the most popular climbing areas,
with detailed topographic maps and photo-topos to help you find your way to your chosen route more easily than
ever. There's also a handy crag selector to help you pick a venue, and convenient thumb-tabs for easy navigation.
