10 pitches.

Rockfax Description
This is one of the best offerings in Nissedal following a striking line. It is a long climb with mostly crack climbing offering different widths. There is an optional start which adds two friction pitches. These are seldom climbed as most people approach by scrambling a ramp to the start of the 4th pitch (good shoes necessary). Big cams are invaluable on this climb.
Approach - Follow the road along the base of the mountain to a very well-worn path that branches off the road around 2-300m before you are beneath the route. Continue diagonally leftwards through the trees, then over slabs to the start of the route, or walk down to the optional start.
1) N5, 40m. Climb slabs to a flake system and follow them slightly left to a one bolt belay.
2) N5, 50m. Continue up slabs trending right at the start of the pitch. Belay when you reach the ramp. The climb is usually started here.
3) 20m. Follow the ramp easily to the bottom of the flaky groove and belay on a single bolt.
4) N5, 40m. Climb the flaky (right) groove being careful about where you put runners - some of the flakes can be unstable. Pass an optional stance and climb steeper rock to a belay on nice grassy ledge at the top of a groove.
5) N5+, 40m. Follow the groove for 15m and make steep moves left to another groove and more cracks. Follow these to a foothold stance at a bolt belay which can be backed up by a large cam.
6) N5+, 50m. Continue up wide cracks (large cams) to easier terrain and continue to a belay on a ledge below a steep section.
7) N6-, 40m. The steep start is technical but it is well protected. Continue up cracks then traverse the slab rightwards (often wet). Belay on a single bolt with back up.
8) N5, 25m. Move up to the roof then continue diagonally rightwards to the bottom of a steeper section and another single bolt belay.
9) N5+, 50m. Climb the steeper section (optional nice finger-crack on the right) and continue through an awkward wide section (big cams) to a grassy ledge.
From the last belay follow a well-worn path that leads leftwards along a ledge to the top.
Descent - 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
One of the classics of the Hægefjell. A direct start is described in the Rockfax guide but most people start at the main corner system. The route often suffers from seapage to varying degrees.

n6- in the Rockfax guide, n6- in the online guide, and n6 in the Gå Telemark guide.

TheFasting 19 May, 2018 AltLd RP One of my dream routes. Tough because it was very sustained. 3 other parties on the route, but it all worked out. I did the odd numbered pitches. Slipped on pitch 3 and the rope tensioned on some pro before I stopped, so in the name of transparency I'm logging it as a redpoint (even though I personally don't count is as that with a 1 meter slide on a 380m route). Me and a lot of people agree that the offwidth at the last pitch was the crux. There's a new bolted belay station before the offwidth in the last pitch, at the shelf in the topo. Very useful to not have to do running belay or something up to the path.

Big Lee 12 Jul, 2014 AltLd G/U Awesome route. Did the original start. Needed two attempts to gain the crack at the start of the n6- pitch. The subsequent n5 pitch felt very hard for the grade! We both fell off twice trying to mount the slab above the initial step. The route was largely dry except some seepage on the traverse. I think this is one of the best multipitch trad routes that I have climbed ever. Sustained, interesting climbing all the way and a really strong line.

Chad123 25 Jul, 2007 AltLd O/S Very slow to dry indeed - whole cliff seemed to be dry except this route but we did it anyway - crux was pretty hard and some pitches were very wet. Still great fun though and full value for HVS when wet! Maybe E1 a fairer overall grade??
