<< Rapellruta < 1910 ruta | Englevinger > Forsida >>
A combination of good pitches makes for a popular outing. Also known, for obvious reasons, as The Spiral Route.
1) 4+, 24m. Start as for the 1910 Ruta but keep right up a flake, then follow the groove to the shoulder and a good stance.
2) 5+, 20m. The diagonal crack splitting the front face of The Goat is 'The West Wall Finish' to Forsida. Make a hard start then continue to the notch between the horns and a possible stance at a fat old peg. Traverse the slab leftwards to gain the western arete and finish up this to the top of the Storhorn. Cross the gap to belay on the Lillehorn. The rockfall from the Lillehorn may have damaged the start of this pitch making it even harder than it used to be.
FA. (P1) G.Santesson, E.Tjerneld 1938. (P2) Bjørn Bommen, B.Lyche 1928
Makes a nice combination with Forsida. Up the Baksida - jump, abseil down and run up the Forsida and down. Nice day out with the greatest attraction being the jump!
