About 170m. (The “Daring Crack” of Vågakallen) This is the striking, vertical crack splitting the cliff. It is a sustained, fist-sized crack. Carry plenty of large cams.
1) 6, 30m. Climb steep cracks in red rock through a roof and up to a belay stance below the main soaring crack-line.
2) 6+, 40m. Fist jam and layback up the strenuous, parallel-sided and never-ending crack. It is usual to abseil from here.
3 - 5) Several more pitches were climbed on the first ascent, but the exact line of the route, and grade of the pitches, is not known.

I would call it an off-width crack...
