Easily accessible and directly above the spot where many climbers camp, Gandalf Wall is great for moderate midsized multipitch. Climbers are easily visible from the road, making it easy to see if the route you are after is free.

Descend climber's left along the clifftop until a cairned path winds its way back towards the road.

Getting There 

816 towards Henningsvaer. Park at the pullouts across from the cliff and approach along the obvious trails (crossing the large black pipe which is the water supply for Henningsvaer). The approach takes roughly 10 minutes.
