Uloya’s numerous ice-cascades present an ideal teaching and practising ground, so if you want to try your hand at ice-climbing, we will be happy to introduce you to this exciting activity. We will supply all the equipment and guiding, so all is left for you is going for it!
The two main valleys offer many icefalls. The two largest areas are the upper level of the Blåvannet Valley and Isvannet. Ice cascades 10, 30, 60 metres long, all from very easy to technical, stretch out above you, many of them still unclimbed.

In 2016 the first wall routes were established. The central Pillar of Uløytinden was climbed by our team via “Starless Spur” (Chmielinski-Klimczak-Paszczak, 650m, M6+, 10hrs), the north face of Skjelettinden 942m (“The Three Max” Kulesza-Wolski, 450m, M5+, 10hrs), and the east ridge of Skjelettinden (Szycman-Warzywoda, III, 3 hrs). The first icefalls were climbed by 2 Poles – Norwegian resident and our chief guide Pawel Karczmarczyk and Witek Dabrowski in April 2015. Check out the Alpinist Magazine report here.
Uløya boasts fantastic walls in 3 picturesque valleys.
The largest one is the Isvannet Valley with faces up to 500m in height, culminating in the summit of Uløytinden 1116m. The most impressive formation is a central pillar with a difficult headwall. The face is home to numerous gullies, complete with spectacular icefalls and cascades.
Smaller, but much steeper and far more serious looking, is the eastern face in the Blåvannet valley, approximately 300 m high, but with many exposed, difficult problems to solve, before leading you to the summit of Blåtinden at 1142m.
Finally, there are the northern walls of Blåtinden which climb up from the small Blåtindvannet Lake. These walls are approximately 300m high, but less steep than the eastern ones and less demanding.
