Cat ear traverse, Neverdal’s finest point of view!
This is a real summit, where we constantly use ropes.
It is high, exposed, but delicious! To get out to the tip, we must cleave over an egg while it is straight down on both sides. We use the rope all the way, and once we reach the tip, you can truly enjoy the view. This is the finest point of view, in Neverdal!
From there it is rappelling down again. The first rappell is down to a tongue sticking out, then several more rappells. The last rappell is absolutely magic, it’s a 36m free rappel, while it’s still about 800m straight down, we land on a small ledge! We are now on the side of a small goat, and from there we use the rope actively down the valley and back to the path we came from, full of a new sense of achievement.
We meet up at the ski cabin in Neverdal, and we go through our internal procedures with attached risk analyzes and checklists. Everyone is given out their personal climbing equipment, which we will go through together before we start.
From here it’s about 1.30 min walk until we reach the steeper parts of the valley. Once we are there, we will rope up, and continue our way upwards in ropes. When we get up, we’ll take a last talk about tactics before we climb our way out to the ear. It’s a nice climb, it’s straight down on both side of your legs. When we’re out on the tip, it’s rappelling down to the first tongue that’s hanging below the ear. From here, there are 4 nice rappells down, that takes us back to the path we came from. We take photos during the day, which you will be given after the trip.
