95m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
(Old Fox) The attractive twinned groove system in the centre of the face gives sustained and well-protected jamming and laybacking. Popular and worthwhile. Start below a black slab (sometimes wet) below the main corner.
1) N6, 45m. Climb easily to the base of the groove, then layback and jam up the right-hand corner until a harder move leads up and left into easier cracks and a corner. Belay on the left.
2) N6, 60m. Continue up a groove with an awkward hand-crack to a grassy ramp, then climb a short tricky crack on the right to another ledge. Finish up the unlikely looking thin finger-crack, splitting the steep wall above to jugs and an easy finish.
2a) N7, 20m. Revungen (Fox Cub) Step right from the stance and climb the thin cracks right of the arete - tiny wires protect the run-out up the slab above - scary! Take a belay then add another pitch up the rest of Gamle Rev. © Rockfax

Best route at the crag in my option - E1 5b (just) with continually interesting and excellent climbing.

Possible in one pitch with 70m ropes. Easier than last year, great fun! Not as great as Tromsøekpressen, forgot to turn right at the led, so got some free mossy climbing!

Great climb, both good pitches, led p1 which is slightly harder. P2 crack is luckily easier and better protected than it looks from below but no pushover. E1 5b, 5b ***

Solid climb. Highly recomended. First pitch more straneous, second pitch a bit harder to protect, but still very safe. Great fun.

tried to lead P2 but wasn't feeling it for the top crack so downclimbed and led Mike lead it. A good route though.
