Gamle Rev*** n6
[Gamle Rev, 3 kb]95m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
(Old Fox) The attractive twinned groove system in the centre of the face gives sustained and well-protected jamming. Popular and worthwhile. Start below a black slab (sometimes wet) below the main corner.
1) 6, 45m. Climb easily to the base of the groove, then layback and jam up the corner until a harder move leads leftwards at the top into easier cracks and a corner. Belay on a ledge on the left.
2) 6-, 60m. Continue up a groove with a hand-crack to a grassy ramp, then climb a short awkward crack on the right to another ledge. Finish up an unlikely looking thin finger-crack up the steep wall above to jugs and an easy finish.
2a) 7, 20m. Revungen (Fox Club) Step right from the stance and climb the thin cracks right of the arete - tiny wires protect the run-out up the slab above - scary! Take a belay then add another pitch up the rest of Gamle Rev. © ROCKFAX

Second pitch is closer to 60m than the 50m it says in the guidebook although there are plenty of belays available just below the top.
