100m, 3 pitches.

Rockfax Description
An excellent and well-protected crack climb up the parallel crack system a few metres to the left of Gandalf. Thought by some to be better than its classy neighbour, offering more consistent climbing and no thrutchy wide bits.
1) N5, 40m. From the tip of a block, jam up the fine crack - tricky - stepping left once, and continuing to a sloping stance.
2) N5-, 40m. Continue up the same crack-line, passing a trickier section where the crack splits. Continue up thin cracks in the steeper wall above, on good holds, to a good sloping stance (shared with Tromsø ekspressen).
3) N5-, 25m. Step right, then access the right-hand side of a prominent flake, but move right to easier cracks and the top. © Rockfax
