95m, 3 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A Lofoten classic up the highest part of the cliff by a fine series of pitches, each interesting, varied and well protected. Start up the left-facing groove behind a tree and a large boulder at the right side of the face.
1) 5, 40m. Climb the narrow groove, passing a small overhang, then continue up a short slab to stance by a good crack. Avoid belaying on the loose blocks over to the right.
2) 5-, 35m. Traverse 5m to the right, climb the juggy overhang and awkward groove just to the right. Continue past a possible stance below the steep headwall split by a vertical crack. Cross the tricky slab leftwards and pass the arete, then climb up good finger-cracks to a belay in the prominent yellow niche of the Eagle's Nest. Care needed with rope drag on this pitch.
4) 5-, 25m. From the Eagle's Nest, step right around a small corner - exposed and delicate for a few moves - then follow an easier crack straight to the top.
4a) 6+ 25m. The original (and much harder) finish goes straight through the lip of the Eagle's Nest via a strenuous jamming crack. © Rockfax

Fun climb. Second pitch is mostly hard scrambling/easy climbing. Same goes for the third apart from the first couple moves.

Great route, fantastic varied pitches!

James Rigby 18/Aug/15 2nd β

Great view from eagle ledge... Pitch 2 was long... A few communication problems because acoustics on last pitch... A cool, exposed boulder problem on last pitch with 2 horizontal hand jams.

P1 a tough corner crack to start, especially when a cam wanders in out of reach. Led p2 - a wandering route which took some fathoming out and needed almost everything on my harness. Hauled ropes to get into the eagle's nest for a rest. P3 a delicate step round to a less exciting finish of an otherwise great route.

After waiting out the rain in cafe. Decided to go for it VERY low cloud. Started raining on top pitch. I took lead on the middle pitch. Start of first pitch was hard and very awkward as a few key hold were still wet.
