Any ideas if there is a Lofoten winter guide book?

Yes, and the answer is no.

The Rockfax has a few vague ponters in the back. You might find some topos in that café in Henningvaer. Otherwise, just drive around, pick a stunning looking line and climb it. That's what we did! Well, one line and then it all melted........

Have you considered Senja? Seems go have a better reputation for winter stuff. Nothing special as far as ice climbing goes (same goes for Lofoten) but excellent for mixed and more of a Scottish style. Some basic details on the Senja Lodge page.

Finnkona is pretty special, isn't it?

My understanding - from one winter trip there - is that the local ethic is to climb-but-not-record and keeps the place 'adventurous'.

You're wrong, at least part of IT is recorded to Norsk TindKlubbe portal (Norwegian equavalent of BMC). No guidebooks though.

When you see how little of the rock is developed in Lofoten for rock climbing and how much of the rest is vegetated, it seems like a paradise for Scottish style mixed!

OK, I stand (well, sit really) corrected.
