The broad col behind the Svolværgeita is the usual base for attempts on routes on the short side of the tower. It is a shady, cold and rather unfriendly spot, the atmosphere can be quite intimidating. Scrambling up the path opposite the tower should guarantee spectacular photographs of the ascent team in action.
