A Lofoten classic up the highest part of the cliff with three good pitches - interesting, varied and well protected. Start up the left-facing groove behind a tree and a large boulder at the right side of the face.
1) N5, 40m. Climb the slippery groove and an awkward narrow chimney to reach and pass a small roof. Continue up the fine groove and then a slab to stance by a good crack. It is best to avoid belaying on the big loose blocks over to the right.
2) N5-, 35m. Traverse 5m to the right then climb a juggy bulge and awkward groove just to the right. Continue a short way then cross the delicate slab leftwards until past the arete. Now climb good finger-cracks to belay in the prominent yellow niche of the 'Eagle's Nest'. Care needed with rope drag on this pitch.
4) N5-, 25m. From the 'Eagle's Nest', step right around a small corner - exposed and delicate for a few moves - then follow an easier crack straight to the top.
4a) N6+ 25m. The original and much harder finish goes straight through the lip of the 'Eagle's Nest' up via strenuous jamming. © Rockfax
