Rockfax Description
(Big Slab) Called By the Dashboard Light last time around as nobody told us otherwise! A classic easy introduction to climbing, Paradiset and Lofoten. The thin crack up the centre of the slab (not much gear) leads to a finish up the corner above. Excellent and popular. © Rockfax

I backed off leading this, no gear to protect slab move 10m up. Bonkers to recommend this as a classic easy introduction to Lofoten!

Bit of a shocker for a beginner? Pretty near unprotected where it counts and not easy for the grade

Fantastic route! But not much gear means nothing at all until 8 meters up.

Fun, might as well be climbed solo as you're unlikely to fall from where you can place useful protection.

pulled rope after Antti's lead and climbed on his gear (3 peices) really might as well solo as i felt i was hitting the ground most of the route. Beautiful climb. First route in Lofoten!

This is definitely a "Friends" type of Climb. Really easy with foot friction

Thin on gear up the slab if you don't have small cams. Nice lay back at the top
