Climbs 31 – Rocktype Granite – Altitude 9m a.s.l – Faces NW

Crag features
The road to Henningsvaer crosses the narrow neck of Djupford on a causeway, and a quick "eyes left" will reveal a mountain side of high quality granite running along the eastern side of the fjord. These are the flanks of Budalstinden. Beyond the end of the fjord, and rising above the freshwater lake of Djupfordvatnet (hidden from the road) is the great spur that forms the north-west buttress of Vagakallen which terminates in Point 713m, and is known to climbers simply as Pillaren (the Pillar), it is home to one of the most sought after routes on Lofoten, the great classic of Bare blaber.

Crags get the sun from about mid afternoon onwards and the majority of routes will require a few settled days after rain to drain.

Approach notes
Bare blaber and the routes of Pillaren and the eastern side of Budalstinden are approached by following the path along the north-western shore of Djupford to the terminal moraine that cuts across the valley-allow about an hour. The Two Faces Face and Sjosvaet (the Sea Slab) are reached from parking by the bend on the Henningsvaer side of the causeway.
