Pianohandler Lunds rute*** n4+
100m, 5 pitches.

Rockfax Description
Nice climbing with commodious stances. Start by the twin telegraph poles, below the prominent left-slanting corner.

1) 4, 35m. Climb the corner then slabs and a short steepening to a big ledge on the right.
2) 4+, 20m. Climb up cracks on the right then smear up a slab to reach the right end of the hand-traverse. Up this to another big ledge with assorted belays.
3) 4+, 20m. Traverse right along a fault and climb through a bulge to gain a steep groove. Go up this and a short jamming crack above to a good ledge. A great pitch.
4) 4+, 10m. Climb the short awkward crack (at least 5 if you can't jam) to a big ledge system below the final tier.
5) 4+, 20m. Climb the centre of the face to bulges then head up and left to thin cracks which give a good finale. The awkward finger and hand-crack on the left gives an alternative finish - 4+. © ROCKFAX

Led pitches 2 and 4. Climbed alongside about twenty members of the Norwegian army half of which were already on the climb when we arrived. There was enough room on the route to pass them and not interrupt the "tight schedule" the Sergeant was on. A nice route but a little disjointed in places. After finishing we went for tea in Henningsvaer the walked along Djupfjord to look at bare blabaer. By the time we left the army hadn't cleared pitch 1....

Tried previous day but abandoned after p1 due to v slow novice groups and torrential rain. Was choked with another big group of beginners today but squeezed through. Unless you get to it first expect long waits. Interesting 'hands off' approach by guides means beginners clog this route up for hours most days.

& Bernhard. Climbed in the showery rain and cold wind in desperation, waiting for the weather to improve. Still, it was better than looking for puffins in the guidebook...

Arms were dead by the end, struggled on the jamming section but still the hardest route I've (sort of) climbed to date.

Obscenely overcrowded, 2 teams, four people per rope etc, plus more. This is perhaps one to climb at night when everyone has gone home. Lead pitches 2,3,5, regretted not carrying a belay jacket for the long periods of time spent on ledges, squats seemed to be a suitable alternative. Climbing is broken but enjoyable, at around HVD.

Enjoyable wee outing in the sun. Can see it is popular with the climbing school and clubs as it is polished but still good fun to do.
