Description

Two pitches of what would be nice climbing if it wasn't completely overgrown lead to an easy traverse and then up and right to the heart of the route: two awesome long pitches (50m 10b and 40m 10a) of mostly corner and crack climbing. Typical Norwegian granite, there are face holds and great edges for stemming.

Note: from the end of the traverse, heading straight up the obvious corner is Comfortably Numb. På Kanten traverses out right on flakes and cracks.,

Consider climbing the much cleaner first pitches of Comfortably Numb to reach the 4th and 5th pitch instead of the grassy start.

Rap the top two pitches and then continue down with two more long raps.

See the free guide (linked in the area) for details on the raps and topos.

Location

starts at the very right of the travelled area at the base of the wall (up a few boulders).

Protection

standard rack. No really large gear needed.
