Pizzatyven*** n6
85m, 5 pitches.

Rockfax Description
(The Pizza Thief) The route follows a series of cracks and corners which start on the steep slab at the cliff's base. Originally and aid climb done in the depths of winter, it is still used for aid training on occasions, but hammerless only please.
1) 5- 30m. Climb the near-parallel finger cracks to the big ledge then traverse the grassy ledge leftwards to a belay under the right arete of the big slab.
2) 5-, 25m. Start up the obvious crack system on the right side of the bottom slab and at its top balance left to a small stance and bolt belay.
3) 6, 10m. Climb up a steep corner, climbing leftwards through the overhang to a belay on a good ledge. Hard for the short.
4) 5, 15m. From the right end of the ledge climb the left-facing corner to reach the comfort of a large ledge on the right.
5) 5+ 18m. At the back of the ledge climb the steep corner, then after a few metres, switch to the crack on the right to eventually pass the roof. Finish up easy slabs.
4a) Direct Finish 7- 24m. The the easy flake above the belay spike leads to a desperate rightwards mantel onto a ledge. Easy cracks and corners remain. © ROCKFAX

Excellent route. I've climbed over 300 E2s and this is E2 5c, albeit a short crux.

Lead P1,P3 and P5. The best pitch is the 3rd one, which isn't very difficult for E1. Initially Rozzy set off up the 4th pitch climbing the corner straight up above the 3rd belay ledge. This involved a scary, off balance mantleshelf onto the ledge when way above your gear and not too far from the ground. I had a go and then backed off too. We then found out we were off route. P4 is really only VS. A great route but only E1 (with 1 E1 pitch)

Lead even pitches. Crux hard for short. Awkward to reach good handhold to layback fine once got it.

Did the 7- variation, fell from the crux once.
tuukka - AltLd - 17/Jun/10 with Maija

fell/jumped off the 4th pitch which (as the new update shows) is actually a desperate 7- mantelshelf. attempted to aid it, failed and then lowered of a flake, abbed off. Awesome route though, nice and pumpy unlike a lot of stuff on lofoten
