This is how Ruskeavirta looked in Feb 04
Ruskeavirta mainfall in the end of Feb 04. Normally on the right side of the fall forms a nearly vertical line called 'Uutiskynnys'. Some years on the righthand side of the fall 'Arktinen Pilari' (rough translation, Artic Pillar) forms offering roughly 55m long route called 'Arktinen Hysteria'. Arktinen Hysteria has about 40 m of vertical or near vertical ice, offering great climbing at the grade of rougly WI6 (sometimes when the ice is fat mayby WI5+, but usually even as hard as WI6+).
