Start at the foot of the arete under the tree-filled corner.

1) N4+, 40m. Climb onto the arete proper and follow it through a couple of bulges to a small stance below the thin upper crack.
2) N5+, 20m. Climb the finger-crack to the top - quite testing at half-height and then again just below the crest. © Rockfax

Led p1. Thought it seemed hard for N4+. The stance is shown very high on the diagram and both pitch grades are applied to p1!). This way the N5+ crux would be on p1. However, we split it at the ledge below the final groove of Lys og Skygge which puts all the hard crack climbing on p2. Even then p1 seemed like good N5 with a bold section on low gear just below where Lys og Skygge comes in. Probably the best combination would be Applecake arete then the final groove of Lys og Skyggen. This follows the arete line all the way and keeps the grade to bold N5. A good 2 pitch combination would then be the two N5+ pitches (bottom of Lys og Skygge, top of Applecake).

First pitch is pretty weird and feels a bit hard for the grade. Second pitch is a superb fingercrack. Doing the first pitch of Lys og Skygge offers a more consistently good climb.

Started up 1st pitch of Applecake Arete (4+), belyed at stance om Lys & Skygge and finished up the second pitch of this route (4+). This combination gives more consistent climbing. Likewise p1 of Lys & Skygge and p2 of Applecake Arete gives a more consistent 5+
