top pitch felt hard, but the crack was wet so maybe that affected things...

Led pitch 2, felt hard for the grade.
MD - AltLd O/S - 22/Jun/15 with Jo

Led most of p1 but set up below last bulge with dwindling gear having done something between this route and the 6 to the left all the way up. Thought Mike needed a bit more drag to do the top crack anyway. Egadz.

Its a climb of 2 half's. Top pitch is tricky enough but good climbing.
Gibson27 - AltLd O/S - Jun/12

Last climb in Lofoten. Did in one pitch and finished up the second half of light and shade having got bored of waiting for very, very slow Norwegians.

Started up 1st pitch of Applecake Arete (4+), belyed at stance om Lys & Skygge and finished up the second pitch of this route (4+). This combination gives more consistent climbing. Likewise p1 of Lys & Skygge and p2 of Applecake Arete gives a more consistent 5+
