80m, 3 pitches.

Rockfax Description
(The Puffin Club) A great (and very popular) classic with varied and sustained climbing up the striking right-facing corner and cracks above 'The Island'.
1) N6-, 35m. Climb an easy groove, then step right onto a tricky blunt arete. Move right again into a big right-facing corner which is climbed to a good ledge. The crack contains hidden delights.
2) N6, 35m. Follow the steep corner above, passing the bulge, and continue up a crack until it fades. Move right into another crack which leads to a ledge. Traverse 3m left and climb an easier crack to a large sloping ledge.
3) N5+, 20m. Move up and left to another ledge, then finish up the zig-zag cracks in the steep slab. Time for the photo! © Rockfax

Avoided the traverses and took a direct line at end of P2 - UK E2 5c. Very good route.

Very nice climb, second pitch especially. Second pitch deserving of a good E1 grade

Kirill 20/Jul AltLd

Led P1, P3. Ilia led the crux pitch.

Rick p1 and P2 - amazing climb - found hardest part was on p2 moving out of crack up to roof- bulging layback after that is brilliant

harold walmsley 03/Jul AltLd O/S

Led p1 and p3. P3 seemed about N4 rather than N5

Led p1 and 3. Went direct up the crack which is probably 5b for the tall and harder for those short in stature.

Matt77 02/Jun AltLd O/S

P2. Another Lofoten stonker. It had a stiff pull over the bulge and after that I found it difficult to place gear while laybacking up the crack . Thought this to be in the low E2 range.

2 got a bit lost after the crux bulge, ewan slipped on second, removing a pretty grim flap of skin from his finger, then "cracked on" up the next pitch with only a little whining

Really ace, I lead P2. The hardest move is not pulling through the roof on the huge jugs it's the awkward move to get onto the ledge. The rest of the pitch is ace, including the traverse leftwards on huge jugs. Ace. Rozzy added a slightly harder (5b for her, 5a for me as taller) finish on P3. Great route

Led P2. Slipped off a wet hold just below the roof. Got back on and did it straight afterwards. Very annoying. Great route though.

First route in Lofoten and a great one at that - direct finish on 3rd pitch (E1 5c) makes a good alternative finish. Second pitch is wonderful.
