Crag features

A fine buttress of excellent rock, in a sunny situation and only a short distance from the road. The routes are all sport climbs (bar the original line of the cliff, Hardt klientell) and tend to be fingery and balancy rather than particularly strenuous .

The crag faces southeast and gets the sun in the morning. The rock takes no drainage and so dries rapidly after rain. The approach is non-tidal, though big seas and a high tide might make things tricky.

Contrary to the above, the approach is not non-tidal and you will find yourself having to wade out at high tide, unless you wait for the tide to turn.

Approach notes

The crag is hidden in a secluded spot. The tall crag of Tjeldbergvika Hjornet above the road is a good marker. Park sensibly in the access road to the cycleway and follow an improving track (damp near the start) as it heads down a little valley towards the sea. After less than 5 mins, the boulder beach appears and the crag can be seen away to the right.

Found on the other side of the bay (left of the approach path) is a wall known as Haikjeften, with a steep overhang and a single route.

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.
