The profile of Presten dominates the view along the road to Henningsvaer. A clean sweep of granite rising about 1300 feet almost directly out of the ocean, its hard to not want to climb it. The barrel shaped wall has several different aspects, but most of the popular routes, including Lofoten's most sought after route, "Vestpillaren", are on the center/right section of the nose. This section of the wall is in the shade most of the morning and early afternoon, and goes into the sun in the afternoon and stays sunny late into the night when the midnight sun is shining.
From the camping area beneath the Gandalf Wall, walk up the road until at the parking area on the right side of the road directly below Presten. It takes about 5-10 minutes to walk from the camping area to the parking area, and another 10 - 15 minutes from there to the base of the wall.
