Description [Edit]

Eggum has a good selection of hard routes (5.12a-5.14) that stay dry when it rains. As if it rained in Norway.

Excellent rock, well maintained bolts, and a short drive away from those slabs. What more could you ask for to get off your feet and onto your arms?

The one problem is it faces north, so it will likely be frigid. So bring your jackets. However, the sending will be legendary.

Getting There [Edit]

Drive west from Henningsvær until you see signs to Eggum in the town of Bøstad. Drive along this road until you see two piers sticking out into the water next to a bunch of drying fish and some buildings. Park here. There should be a cliff on the other side of the road that you don't want to climb. Walk west along the road until you see a gate in the fence to your left. Close this behind you and continue all the way to the cliff, a 10 minute hike at most.
