The fine broad buttress that makes up the main bulk of the cliff is home to many of its best routes On the left are a fine set of groove lines and to the right some striking crack-lines - almost all of these give classic climbs. Descent - Walk off to the left or use the abseil anchors in the centre of the cliff, above Førstereisgutten. Care is needed when approaching the upper one - see previous page for line.
