Gaukerisset*** n6

Rockfax Description
(Cuckoo Crack) A fine crack high on the sidewall. An easy approach pitch gets you into the gully and up to its base.
1) 3+, 30m. As for Måken Sven. A straightforward pitch up the gully, or the rock to its right, to a belay underneath the crack.
2) 6-, 45m. The easy initial crack leads to tricky moves right and up to gain the main crackline. Climb this by fine sustained moves as it slices up the steep smooth wall. Excellent climbing. © ROCKFAX

Led pitch 2 (main pitch). Tenuous moves to get established, and then a glorious crack. Great fun.

Led P2

P1. 2nd pitch is amazing, after a tricky start (probably 5b) it's delightful jug hauling to the top, a good 50m pitch!
Dan Lane - AltLd O/S - 13/Jul/12 with Mike Tempest

Led the scrappy first pitch. P2 is outstanding. The crux traverse felt 5b, so 6- might be fair.

Amazing climbing on the 2nd pitch - just a shame it didn't go on for ever!

Felt hard at first but head not really in the right place after slipping in the gully.
mattcyp88 - Lead β - 17/Jul/10 with Harry Martin

Chris led p1. but I could not make the tricky move out right into the main crack system on p.2 despite good gear. I checked a slightly higher alternative traverse but the pro was not so good. The Rockfax 2010 gives the route as 5+ but I think a well protected 6 is about right. A disappointing end to our Lofoten trip since the weather was good after 3 days of mist,rain & showers.
Pete Nugent - AltLd dnf - 24/Jun/10 with Chris Vernon

awesome flake crack, if only it was a bit more sustained. ab from tree at the top (leave tat/maillon or you will get your ropes stuck like we did)
