Leikvika Tjeldsund

Please be respectful of the house that is near the parking and maintain the trail as far away from them as possible. This means gain access on the north side (ice climbers right) of the road cut and traverse south to the creak drainage that leads to the crag.

The toproping is accessed on climbers right of the cliff (north).

Kasfjord Høgfjellefossen

Conditions differ from year to year. There is a nice beginner route between Lågfjellet and Høgfjellet that is less prone to avalanches. The routes on Høgfjell top out on steep snow fields and possible cornices. It is very important to use binoculars and be aware of snow conditions, for these routes are exposed for avalanches. The return is easiest by hiking down the steep treed area east of the top. Crampons are recommended. The descent is also exposed on steep snow fields. If avalanche conditions are dangerous on the descent, it is best to go down beside the easier ice flow to the west.

Route ' At work.' WI 5, ca 250 m klatring + ca 150 m løpende mot toppen.

Pictures of '9-5' in wonderful conditions in 2013. Around 6 pitches of climbing. '9-5' is in red. 'At Work' in green and 'project' in blue that we didn't top out on because of weather. We only did the first 4 pitches. The top looked like straightforward mix climbing.
