DescriptionThe two cliffs of Festvag - Lille Festvag and Store Festvag - are the closest crags to the town of Henningsvaer and a short walk from the main camping area below Gandalf Wall. They offer several nice, short multi pitch routes in a nice setting, with the scattered islands of Henningsvaer in the background below. The routes get sun most of the day, going into the shade later in the evening.
Getting ThereFrom the camping area below Gandalf Wall, look at the ridge to the right of Gandalf Wall - the Festvag crags are just behind this in the next valley over.
Walk down the road towards Henningsvaer. At the base of the valley, find the trail which heads up next to some sort of old stone structure, then up through the boulders. A trail for Lilla Festvag branches off to the left.
For the routes on Store Festvag, stay right on the main trail (which is actually a hiking trail to the lake above and to the summit of Festvagtinden farther still) until roughly at the level of the main crag. Cut directly across and carefully pick your way across the talus field to the base.
