Summary

Seaside cliffs and cleft of multiple aspects

Description

Reportedly the highest cliffs on Bornholm's North coast, this crag offers some 20 routes of up to 13 m. Its most prominent feature is a small narrow canyon-like slot through which the path leads down from the plateau to the sea. Its sea- and westfacing walls offer some more routes.

While the setting is idyllic and great for kids to explore the tidal pools, don't expect too much of the climbing: The rock tends to stay wet or seep in places and can become dangerously slick in combination with the lichens. The walls are generally low and often covered with lichens, thorny bushes or bird droppings. Bring trad gear and long slings or an auxiliary rope, as the routes are generally unequipped.

Approach

Drive along the northern coastal route and follow the signs onto a small track towards the coast. Park and follow signposted footpath.

The recent guidebook shows an alternative approach a few hundred meters further west. This cannot be recommended, as it is more of a private driveway and sure to annoy its owners sooner or later, as there is no real space for parking. Besides, the track can get difficult for ordinary cars when wet.

Ethic

No further bolting (beyond the single existing bolted line).
