Månedans*** n6+

Rockfax Description
(Moon Dance) Two less interesting pitches lead to a fine finish up the overhanging groove and exposed top slab. The route is generally well protected.
1) 6-, 30m. At the left-hand end of the lower cliff band, jam up a short steep crack to slab and then a grassy ledge. Continue up a V-groove to a small stance.
2) 5, 35m. Step left and climb a left-facing corner (some loose blocks) to reach easier climbing up columns to another small stance below the last pitch - a spectacular leaning groove.
3) 6+, 30m. Jam and bridge up the sensational, overhanging, groove corner (sustained) until it ends, then follow finger-cracks first to the left, then back right up the exposed slab and an easier finish on the right. © ROCKFAX

P1 & 3. Excellent top pitch

Led pitch 2. Struggled with the crux pitch (3) on second, and had to rest on the rope to recover gear. The corner is much steeper than it looks!

Led P1,3. Ran out of steam at the very top of the corner when I failed to spot an obvious foothold and grabbed the crap end of the jug. Got back on and finished it, but not without another slip on the slab above. Leading this was a bit optimistic to begin with, so not too disheartened!

bottom two pitches rubbish. Perhaps best to approach via Gaukerisset then rap in for the fantastic top pitch of this route.

Two pitches that are a waste of time to one superb pitch. Probably about soft E2.

Pitch 3 is amazing, just put on the blinkers for the trash that is the first 2 pitches....

Sadly first two pitches are pretty scrappy but top pitch more than makes up for it, with a cool groove and fun slab to finish. Loads of gear and some awesome moves....The "5a" crack on the first pitch is a tricky warm up!

Crux pitch is fantastic. Felt like proper N6+, not Lofoten 6+
