Crag features

A collection of short sport routes in a secluded setting, very close to the Sandvika/Ørsvågvær campgrounds. The routes here are steep, powerful and hard - there is no fancy slab climbing available and a few hours' activity should ensure a good workout. The crag doesn't see much in the way of visitors and travelling backwards and forwards along the crag base is quite tricky - don't fall in the sea! The area at the right-hand edge of the crag has recently been tarmaced - this has reduced the length of a couple of (already short) routes and improved the odds of lots of people in camper-wagons checking on your ethics.

Lofoten Climbs

The second Rockfax guidebook to this spectacular and beautiful area, the first 2008 volume won the Banff Guidebook of the Year Award and put Lofoten very much on the map. The information has been updated and expanded with a completely new set of crag photographs, plus some fantastic maps and all the new developments from the nine years since the last book was published. For the first time the astounding set of peaks around the Stetind area on the mainland have been included.
