385m, 8 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A fine, long, friction slab route. The third pitch offers the best climbing. All belays are equipped for abseil.
Approach - From the campground/parking area follow a well-worn path rightwards along the base of the mountain gradually rising, passing some very good boulders. Look out for bolts with orange hangers below a left-facing groove a hundred metres up. 30 mins.
1) N5-, 55m. A fully bolted slab pitch.
2) N5+, 55m. Another fully bolted slab pitch leads to a belay at a small ledge.
3) N5+, 55m. The best pitch of the climb. Climb diagonally right towards the groove with a big crack in it. Climb this and its continuation to a belay on top of a flake. Two bolts are found where it matters.
4) N5, 20m. A short pitch through a small roof, which is well protected.
5) N5-, 55m. Follow a groove and extend your runners to avoid rope-drag. A bolt near the end of the pitch shows the way to the belay.
6) N5-, 55m. Climb the rest of the groove and continue along a nice crack.
7) N5-, 60m. The angle eases but the holds get smaller. A pure friction pitch which can be done with 55m ropes and some rope stretch.
8) N5-, 60m. More friction leads to the top. If you don't have 60m ropes your second needs to follow before you reach the belay. Alternatively you can traverse out to the right and the top belay on the neighbour route Sternschnuppe (unprotected).
Descent - Either abseil down the route or, from the top of the mountain, follow the ridge west (plenty of cairns) and pass one steep section before you head down a slab into a gully that cuts across your path. Turn right and descend more steeply, down a very well-worn path through the woods. This path joins a blue-marked path that leads down to the road beneath Hægefjell. Follow the road back to the camp. The descent takes approximately 1.5 hours. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
A slabby sports/trad climb initially following a line of orange bolts. Graded n5- in the online guide, UIAA 5+ in the Gå Telemark guide, and n5+ in the Rockfax guide, although maybe the latter has confused the UIAA grading?

guhj 23 Jul, 2016 AltLd O/S Got a late start, but with the weather clearing up we felt good. I seconded the slab start and the crux pitch with a backpack on, but then got to lead p4,5,6. P7 was my partner's lead, and we got off route after the grade 4 crux. Just after he got to an anchor, the rain started. We chose to head upwards, and got a bit of a slow panicky experience of the last bit completely off route, but eventually got up. The descent path was hard to find in the dark, so we were back at camp at 2 am, with wet and muddy feet, quite tired, but otherwise in good spirits.

Droyd 13 Jun, 2014 AltLd O/S Did it in 9 by accidentally splitting p8 (60m pitch but found a belay halfway up), led 1, 3, 5, 7, 9. P3 has the best climbing (mostly natural gear, laybacking beefy cracks), 1 and 2 felt a little spaced, and 9 was quite terrifying, and not all that easy.

cali1001 ?Sep, 2009 AltLd O/S great route, really nice friction climbin first 2 p. pitch 3-6 was also great, last 2 pitches was easy but little scary friction with little o no protection. If you go to Haegefjell this is also o "A must do route". Several pitches are almost 60 meters long.... Rapell back with double 60m rope, the rapellancor is situated about 20 meters left (face down) of the end ancor of the route.
