Description

All day sun, easy access, good rock & several entry level graded routes make this the most popular crag near Henningsvær. Expect to line up in the summer for the guidebook classics

Descent notes

A pleasant walk off (West).

There is also an abseil line which was rebolted April 2020. 2 rapps (42 & 34m). It´s not unusual for the ropes to get snagged.
