"Kettle-baths." One of the rivers Thor has to wade through on his way to the judgment-throne, according to Grímnismál. The names of the other two rivers are Körmt and Örmt.

Körmt and Örmt,
and the Kerlaugs twain:
these Thor must wade each day,
when he to council goes
at Yggdrasil's ash;
for the As-bridge
is all on fire,
the holy waters boil.

The other Æsir ride their horses over Bifröst to the judgment.
