Rock and Roll ridge, Lofoten, grade 3+ climb/scramble. © jim hughes
There are a number of minor venues around the superb sandy beach of Rørvika. The main event is a small collection of routes in a dramatic situation to the right of the upper section of the popular Rock and Roll Ridge. Just to the north of this area are a few less popular routes near Lyngvær.
The Rørvika crags are visible high above the road just to the north of the popular sandy bay of Rørvika. The best parking is on the extensive area by the junction. The Lower Wall is reached by walking down the road and following the grassy slope to the left of the large blocks and boulders of the scree. The Upper Wall is reached by scrambling up the lower section of the Rock and Roll Ridge (page 118) for about fifteen minutes, then moving out right to the sloping terrace under the face.
An interesting way to get back down from the wall (and earn an extra tick) is to continue up the Rock and Roll Ridge, over the top and down the steep grass slopes on the right-hand (south) side of the ridge.
