80m, 3 pitches.

Rockfax Description
(The Puffin Club) A great classic, very popular with varied and sustained climbing up the striking right-facing corner and cracks above The Island.
1) 6-, 35m. Climb up an easy groove then step right onto a blunt arete. Move right again into a big right-facing corner which is climbed to a good ledge.
2) 6, 35m. Follow the steep corner above, passing the bulge, and continue up a crack until it fades. Move right into another crack which leads to a ledge. Hand traverse 3m left and climb
an easier crack to a large sloping ledge. The crack contains hidden delights.
3) 5+, 20m. Move up and left to another ledge then finish up the zig-zag cracks in the steep slab. Time for the photo! © Rockfax

Bit wet in parts of the crack (October stylee) but enjoyable climbing nonetheless, bomber gear, whole area to ourselves.

2 got a bit lost after the crux bulge, ewan slipped on second, removing a pretty grim flap of skin from his finger, then "cracked on" up the next pitch with only a little whining

Really ace, I lead P2. The hardest move is not pulling through the roof on the huge jugs it's the awkward move to get onto the ledge. The rest of the pitch is ace, including the traverse leftwards on huge jugs. Ace. Rozzy added a slightly harder (5b for her, 5a for me as taller) finish on P3. Great route

P1 and 3. Quality route. brilliant. shame about the super slow Norwegian muppet in front - spoilt the route!

Led P2. Slipped off a wet hold just below the roof. Got back on and did it straight afterwards. Very annoying. Great route though.

First route in Lofoten and a great one at that - direct finish on 3rd pitch (E1 5c) makes a good alternative finish. Second pitch is wonderful.
