236m. (Only Bilberries) A pure classic and, despite its distance from the road, it is hugely popular. The name is Norwegian for a task of no great difficulty, obviously it refers to the actual climb and not the walk in.

A great route. The walk in is not bad if you don't get lost - there is a small path all the way, but people do miss it. Take water - we were therein midsummer and some parties turned back because of the heat.
Brilliant climbing, take your towel to cool of in the Fjord. Beware when you rap off. Some folk get their ropes stuck in the really wide chimney.
Fantastic route with great climbing. Pitch 5 being my favourite pitch climbed in a 2 week trip. The top pitch must be more then 36m, our 50m ropes were only just enough, although we didn't take the most direct line.
1. The last pitch is about 50m to the anchor.
The approach takes average 90minutes. The update has a new descent described, it's good.
Every route in the guide assumes that you have 2x60 meter ropes. In that case you can rap off Bara Blåbär with 3-4 absails.
Usually, the local guides ar coming here with their groupes on Thursday. Maybe better to plan another day or even to ask in the office. Its a pretty long approach to see that your number 12 in the line.
The advice on abseiling, both in the guide and the update, is out of date. The best way is (from the top): one abseil to the previous stance, a second abseil to bolts/chains further right (looking in) of the stance at the end of pitch 5; then 3 further abseils directly down well to the right (looking in) of the route. This is all equipped with bolts/chains and 50-m ropes are fine. Mega-classic route, a must-do.
Incredible route and beautiful view.
