On rounding the first headland an impressive barrel-shaped buttress appears high up on the left. Jomfru pillaren (Virgin Pillar) only has one route at present, though there is scope for others, the most obvious one being the long corner system round to the right. The base of the face is reached by a short steep scramble.
Approach (see map on page 184) - Park in the lay-by on the landward side of the outer bridge on Route 816. Scramble east around the headland. A more direct approach across the spur might be possible too.
