FESTVÅG


Lille and Store (Little and Big) Festvåg are two of the closest cliffs to Henningsvær. They are a pair of excellent crags with a number of interesting and varied routes, which mostly tackle grooves and cracks. From a distance the cliffs look a little loose, but in fact the rock is extremely solid and well-featured offering excellent climbing on clean rough granite.
