Short sport crag above a pretty lake.

Approach notes

Park at the end of a short track and walk left or right, depending which bit you are heading for.

A very pretty place for a brief visit or if looking for an easy day. Local climbers have put in a huge effort, and the shelter is a work of art to admire. The climbing is a bit weird - the guidebook suggests friendlier grading than all other routes in the book - we found the opposite. We did a 5- that was way harder than the 6- Stetind headwall pitches! The Lekeveggen routes would be boulder problems elsewhere and not even particularly highball ones, and we think the guidebook has the grades reversed on the that wall - the 3+ is very definitely not 3+!
