Facing down the valley is the impressive bastion that terminates the north west ridge of Vågakallen. There are currently only three long routes here for which limited details are known. Descent - Long and arduous. From the summit of Pillaren, scramble south along the ridge to the col between Vågakallen and Kvandalstinden, then descend the steep trail back down to Djupfjorden, 1 - 2 hours.
