85m, 3 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A good hard route which gives some great jamming up a strong line with three varied pitches. Opinions vary on the grade. Bring a good range of cams including a few big ones. Start down and right of the col at a clean area reached by an exposed scramble.
1) N6, 30m. Traverse right (bolt) and climb the thin crack before moving back left, then head direct to a good stance.
2) N6+, 35m. The thin crack in the steep groove leads to an overhang. Power over this and continue to the shoulder.
3) N6+, 20m. Descend left to the foot of a steep crack. Climb this, gradually widening, to an action-packed finish. © Rockfax

βeta: This is a magnificent climb without a bad pitch on it. 3 very contrasting pitches well worth seeking out.

hlegge 13 Jul AltLd dog Disappointed in myself. Took two rests whilst leading pitch 2. The moves were all fine, but got pumped and psyched out by the roof which was actually ok with a natural rest before it starts! Would get it clean if repeated. Rest was great and top pitch was cool to second. Mike made it look easy!

islandlynx 3 Jun, 2017 AltLd O/S Led p1,3. A really great route. Quality climbing the whole way and a great belay spot at the top (in good weather). Pitch 2 is the crux and a very intricate/sustained pitch. Pitch 3 is easier than p2 and n6 in my opinion. High E1 5b perhaps. Gear is great.

Matt77 3 Jun, 2017 AltLd O/S P2. Every pitch is great with P2 being the hardest (around E2 5b I reckon). I didn't fancy the jump between the goat's horns at the top. A great end to the trip after getting shut down by the weather on Kvaloya at the start. Had a lovely drive back to Tromso reflecting on some fantastic routes in one of the most beautiful, rugged parts of the world I've been to.

Pippa 28 Jul, 2015 AltLd O/S Wet morning but sun popped out just as we set off up the second pitch. Tricky slab and crack first pitch, lead second corner crack, strenuous but really well protected, nice rock over move to get out over the roof. Roof pulled my beanie off mid move and lost it down the side of the first belay. Struggled to hold damp fist jams in worst bit of wide crack on third pitch, unable to reach higher for better ones, both hands popped seconding. Lead first pitch again to retrieve dropped hat, found it harder than the second. Finished at 11.30pm. Met a cat at the base of the crag (40minute hike uphill) it must really like wild mice!
