Himmelen kan vente*** n6+
[Andy working out the devious and unlikely looking traverse round the corner on Heaven Can Wait. (Himmelen kan vente), 2 kb]310m, 9 pitches. (Heaven Can Wait) The route is not entirely new, the lower section uses some pitches that have been done before. A large cam or two will come in useful. 1) 4+, 25m. As for pitch 1 of the Original Start (page §§§) but move up to a stance at the foot of a left-trending groove. 2) 6+ (or A0), 50m. Traverse left to reach the long cracks and climb this - sustained - until it curves over and forms a flake. Either free climb the arete on the left, or the thin crack up and right with a quick pull on a nut. Belay on the ledges just above. 3) 3+, 30m. Up easy ground to a belay at the foot of a groove. 4) 6-, 40m. Climb the right leaning corner and the continuation crack to reach a small stance on the left. 5) 5-, 40m. Climb the big leaning corner almost to its end, then head out left to a belay. 6) 6+, 35m. Continue up the corner to the stance below the Slanting Corner on Vestpillaren. 7) 6+, 30m. Head out left onto the face and climb this diagonally leftwards (not obvious and poorly protected) to a small stance. 8) 6+, 35m. Climb up and left into a long crack and follow this to a wild stance under the roof that caps the wall. 9) 6+, 25m. Traverse left under overhang, climb the corner, and then move out right under the overhang to a sudden ending. © ROCKFAX

The slab on pitch 7 is well protected on the hard bit. As good as Vestpillaren but considerable less crowded.
Jonas Wiklund - AltLd O/S - Jul/09 with Joakim Söderström, Tommy Nilsson

We did a variation at pitch 7, doing one pitch of Vestpillaren Alternative Finish. Once again, outstanding route!
Fultonius - AltLd O/S - 08/Jun/09 with Andy Inglis

Took Vespillaren original route on pitch 7 instead of the unobvious poorly protected slab. Lots of great pitches especially the last 2!
