2 pitches. The waterfall to the left of the bridge. Pretty steep but divided by ledges which helps give it an amenable grade.

if you're happy on Scottish 4 this is a nice one to kick off your trip with.

A great route with 2 long pitches. Can do various direct options to make the route hard 4

An excellent WI4 climb at end of March 2006. Well worth its 3 stars and easy to get to

If you choose the beautiful rightmost line it´s steep. With 60m rope you can actually climb over all the difficulties in one long pitch.
Left lines are maybe WI3+4-.

In the conditions this route was as hard as the west route and gave 95m of climbing bottom to top. Up the middle was delightful.24/1/08

Climbed the route again two weeks ago. I lead it bottom-top with a 70m rope, at least 5m left after reaching top. Righthand side busy, left side very easy and ladderlike. This season, more than last anyway, both Vemorkbrufoss and Host (long one-pitch WI4 just nearby) are totally hacked up for you and sees a lot of action.

Belaying where shown on the topo would make the first pitch a very long (60m?) grade 4 and the second pitch a very short (25m) grade 2. We belayed on the next tier down, making a more even split (50m grade 3 + 40m grade 4). As noted by others, the right hand line is steeper and could be done in one long pitch.
