An excellent and well-protected crack climb up the parallel crack system a few metres to the left of Gandalf. Almost as good as its classy neighbour.</br>1) 5, 40m. From the tip of a block, jam up the fine crack - tricky - stepping left once, and continuing to a sloping stance.</br>2) 5-, 35m. Continue up the same crack, past a ledge, to a short slab. Climb the slab, then move up thin cracks in the steeper wall above, on good holds, to a good sloping stance (shared with Tromsø ekspressen).</br>3) 5-, 25m. Step right, then climb the right side of a prominent flake but move right to easier cracks and the top.
Reminiscent of the very best of Chairladder VSs.
Felt more like 5-,5-,5-, still a great route though.
Thought 5 was fair enough for the first pitch.
Maybe even better the Gandalf
