This route can easily be done in 3 pitches to storhylla by stretching the first belay to a stance close to the roof (55m) and pitch 2 until one of the good ledges above the roof (45/50m). This avoids rope drag and bad communication for the roof pitch (P2).

Classic line heading up the full height of Presten. Starts on right side of main face, about 20m left of a steep choked gully. Abseil retreat possible with two ropes without leaving gear up to end of pitch 4.

  1. N5+, 45m. Up centre of three shallow corners, then traverse left to crack which leads to a small ledge with a chain belay to the right.

  2. N6-, 40m. Follow groove then up to flake/block on the left. Continue into a thin finger-crack and continuation to bolt/chain belay.

  3. N6, 50m. Up the narrow groove then left up a diagonal ramp to bolt/chain belay.

  4. N5-, 20m. Short wall and groove then up to bolt/chain belay. This pitch can be linked into the following with careful rope management.

  5. N4, 20m. Move up to right of large block and follow cracks to belay on top of block.

  6. N6-, 45m. Up thin cracks/grooves to a good ledge, then traverse 20m left (some rope drag and loose rock) to belay on a higher ledge in base of groove.

  7. N6, 45m. Follow groove and flake until it becomes a thin crack, then step left into a parallel crack system. Continue up into a left-facing groove to belay above a bulge in the corner.

  8. N5+, 40m. Continue up the groove then right into slabby groove. Belay on either of two ledges at the base of the 'Slanting Corner'.

  9. N6, 40m. The 'Slanting Corner'. Up the clean groove to tiny ledge, then trend left before heading right (can be climbed direct, but harder). Below up right at large block.

  10. N4+, 30m. Up left across ledges to a large loose flake jammed in a groove. Climb carefully up past the flake, then continue left up a chimney groove and below at its top, below open groove.

  11. N5, 35m. Follow the open groove up and right to its top, then move down and right for several metres, before traversing horizontally right. Make delicate moves around right into the grassy exit gully.

  12. N3, 55m. Scramble up grassy gully to top.

To descent, follow path with some exposed scrambling off back of Presten, and down to saddle. Take right hand fork and follow path roughly South before joining main hiking track near Festvaug summit (allow 1-2 hours).
