Rockfax Description
(The Pizza Thief) A series of short cracks and corners which start on the steep slab at the cliff's base. Originally an aid climb done in the depths of winter, it is still used for aid training on occasions, but hammerless only please.
1) N5- 30m. Climb the near-parallel finger-cracks to the big ledge then traverse leftwards to a belay under the right arete.
2) N5-, 25m. Start up the crack system on the right side of the bottom slab. At its top, balance left to a small stance and belay.
3) N6, 12m. Climb the steep groove above with hard moves at the top, then exit left to a good ledge.
4) N5, 15m. Move right into a steep corner/groove and climb this to reach the comfort of a large ledge on the right.
5) N5+, 18m. At the back of the ledge climb the steep corner then, after a few metres, switch to the crack on the right to eventually pass the roof. Finish up easy slabs. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
(The Pizza Thief) Yes really, 5 pitches! First is an access pitch. Second is a brilliant thin fingers crack up a friction slab. Third is the crux - steep and technical groove/overhang. Fourth is yet more steep hand-jamming and the final is a short steep crack.

An excellent, varied route. E2 5c (just) in my opinion.

Horrendous approach and descent but otherwise nice climbing along a series of sections

Led p3 and 5. Seemed OK. P4 harder than p5 despite grades in guide. Crux easier to protect than the crux of Tromso Ekspress and route less sustained so not sure why it is given a higher suggested E grade in the top 50 list

OK climbing I guess, route feels disjointed and slightly contrived. Followed 2010 update.

We didn't get the fact that the ols guide has a WRONG topo in it. Took almost a ledge fall and then we bailed from the loose block. Not so nice route

J_Jansen 01/May/16 AltLd rpt

Fantastic route. Third and fourth pitch are by far the best. Be warned that the the Rockfax guide has the topo wrong. The fourth pitch in reality follows a crack out to the right, not straight up, as shown in the guide. The "Rockfax 2010 Lofoten update" is available online as a PDF and provides the correct topo. Definitely a climb to do.

Wrong line on topo description uncertain. Ended up on desperate 7- sloping mantle shelf with dodgy gear both backed off. Did top pitch of Ingen Sommerferie, 6+. Top roped 7- pitch clean but big swing onto hold after sloper.

Excellent route. I've climbed over 300 E2s and this is E2 5c, albeit a short crux.

James Oswald 30/Jun/13 AltLd O/S

Lead P1,P3 and P5. The best pitch is the 3rd one, which isn't very difficult for E1. Initially Rozzy set off up the 4th pitch climbing the corner straight up above the 3rd belay ledge. This involved a scary, off balance mantleshelf onto the ledge when way above your gear and not too far from the ground. I had a go and then backed off too. We then found out we were off route. P4 is really only VS. A great route but only E1 (with 1 E1 pitch)

Lead even pitches. Crux hard for short. Awkward to reach good handhold to layback fine once got it.

Led P1 & P3

Dan Lane 22/Jul/12 AltLd O/S

P2 and 4+5. Top notch route with lots of good, varied climbing.

fell/jumped off the 4th pitch which (as the new update shows) is actually a desperate 7- mantelshelf. attempted to aid it, failed and then lowered of a flake, abbed off. Awesome route though, nice and pumpy unlike a lot of stuff on lofoten
