As the Henningsvær road heads round the bend from Rørvika it passes a series of ribs and buttresses that fall from the crest of Sørfjellet far above.
The first is home to the awe-inspiring roof crack of one of Lofoten's hardest routes. - Minnerisset. The route is clearly visible from the road and is easily approached from the roadside parking.
Rising above Route 816, well to the left of Maurpillaren and Pianokrakken, are two long, rocky ridges. The left-hand ridge has two routes at present. Neither are very popular, although Ladies Jigsaw is worth seeking out since it offers a 5 pitch route at a friendly grade.
Further south is a good clean slab of rock which has potential for new routes. The slab is quite tricky to spot from below, but is located to the north of the Pedersenryggen, which is the long rocky ridge with huge caves on its right-hand side, to the north of Maurpillaren and Pianokrakken.
