Thirst in the Clouds
<< Left Approximation < Terra i mar | Noensfoten > Ticket to Greenland >>
(a.k.a. Helvetesveggen/Hell's Wall) This 16 pitch route tackles the centre of the face via a soaring series of left-facing grooves. The first 11 pitches were climbed in 1984, then in 2009 a Russian team spent three nights on the wall and finished the route off with plenty of aid climbing. Some bolts were placed on the first attempt and the Russians placed more. The hard climbing is believed to concentrated in the upper sections up blank grooves. The route line is thought to be correct but the stances are guesses and pitch grades are unknown.
