Manens Døtre*** n6
140m, 4 pitches. The route has always played second fiddle to Solens sonner but after a typical Lofoten start, it develops into a great climb. It ascends the cliffs central crack system and the middle of the huge upper slab. Above the starting ledge is right facing flake with shrubbery- this is it. 1) 6-, 24m. Climb up behind the flake, up a slab, through a bush, and then up a short, strenuous and muddy fist crack to easier ground and a belay on flakes. 2) 5+, 30m. Continue up a grassy crack, then climb its bushy continuation crack which becomes a perfect clean finger crack leading to a large belay ledge. 3) 5+, 30m. Climb up the slab above (just right of a bush) to a horizontal crack. Clip a high bolt, then step right and climb up a clean slab to a ramp protected by a second bolt. Now move up right to a tiny foothold belay stance (fixed nuts) at the base of the upper finger crack. 4) 6-, 55m. Climb the upper finger crack until it ends, then move up and left then back right, past 2 spaced bolts, to a sloping ledge with a double bolt belay.

Led pitches 3, 4. I reckon p4 was my hardest lead to date.

Led P1,2. Outstanding performance from Cameron on the upper slab, don't think I'd have had the head for the runout.

Retreated onto the 2nd belay of this after backing off solens sonner. Clare set off up this pitch but backed off the crux moves which are getting to the second bolt. I lead the pitch then which felt fine but scary. Neither of us fancied P4 of this so we abseiled off. We tried to string 3 abseils into 2 abseils but found that we were running out of rope. After removing the rope from the belay device to downclimb the remaining bit the end of the rope shot from the belay device and fired up the slab on rope stretch. Clare spent 20 minutes aid climbing to get the end of the rope because we thought that this was the one that needed pulling. It turns out we needed to pull the other one.

Linked to 3rd pitch from Solens sønner, so I led 3rd pitch (fairly scary), Toby backed off 4th so retreat from single wire which now backed up with another...
