Rockfax Description
(Light and Shade) A lovely climb, start at the foot of a right-trending grassy ramp.
1) N5+, 25m. Climb the ramp, then the steep fingery wall on the left and thin cracks, to a belay on the left below a roof.
2) N4+, 35m. Step left and climb the wall then the arete for 12m, until a step right can be made into a groove. Climb this to the chain. A more direct version of the upper section of this pitch is the exposed Solformørkelsen, N6-. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
1) HVS 5a, 20m.
2) 4b, 35m.

Kemics 10 Jul, 2013 AltLd O/S I had the lead for top pitch. Possibly one of the best i've ever climbed. Super exposed but easy enough so you can just run it out and enjoy. Just stunning. But seriously cold. Was shivering on belay and the abseil over the roof is a pretty wild way to end.
