This fantastic 600 meters icefall is one of the longest ice routes in the world situated in the Eikesdalen valley.The weather in the upper part of the valley is often quite warm so some of the climbs in the valley doesnt form every year. Brudeslöret is often one of the first ices to get in shape. On this picture you can see the Gulisen to the right of Brudeslöret.Me to the left!

The climb starts with a short pitch of 5+ climbing up to a snowfield. Then climb 2-3 pitches of 5+ ice up to an escape route ledge with some snow. This escape route goes to the bortom of the Gullisen. From here you have 6-7 pitches of perfect ice of 5+ to the top.
There are three choises:
1. Rapell the route.
2. Walk down into the gorge and rapell down the Aurestaupet 40 m. 2-4 hours
3. Walk down southeast to Gullisen and then rapell 4 times to the valley floor. This descent is only for people who know the way and have climbed Gullisen beforehand. 1,5-2,5 hours
