[Dan on the first pitch of Tromso Ekspressen (5b)., 3 kb]95m, 2 pitches. The Tromsø Express) A fine route up the most prominent of the parallel grooves in the centre of the cliff. Three well protected crack pitches make for a great route. 1) 6, 40m. Climb the black slab, step right and make a quick pull into the base of the groove. Follow it by laybacking and jamming to its top. Step right and climb up into a thin left-facing groove which leads to an excellent belay ledge on the left. 2) 6, 30m. From the right end of the ledge, climb a thin, vertical crack just to the left of a grassy groove. Continue up cracks and flakes then move right onto a sloping belay ledge. 3) 5, 25m. Step right, climb the left side of the flake, then finger jam up an arching thin crack on the left. © ROCKFAX
