KONG VINTER


The little Gorge of Kong Vinter is easily accessible, has a nice setting and good climbing. It is a great place to spend a day and the quick and easy abseil access means that you can tick a number of routes in a day. The ice is well-sheltered from the sun giving reasonably reliable conditions.
The isolated route Førerkomiteen, passed on the approach drive, offers sustained climbing for two pitches. Both locations have several new lines waiting to be done.
Kong Vinter Area saw 5 new lines climbed in 2005. It is not absolutely certain that these were first ascents but we have reason to believe that this area hadn't seen much traffic. As with all the information in this guide we have only recorded first ascents that we were aware of when going to press. If we mistakenly have missed your first ascent, we would love to be made aware of this for updating later editions of the Rjukan guide.
