If you're looking for the longest climb on Vagmarken, this is the one. Start just left of the Buttress prow in a crack dihedral the shoots a straight line up the central face of the rock. Midway up you'll find a bolt and then moves slightly right to easier climing to the top. Caution! There is loose rock on this route; especially the large, tempting flake just by the move after the bolt. To descend; scramble up to the top and head right to drop down the right side of the Buttress on some 3rd and 4th class terrain back to your gear.
