(The Outside Route) A great climb and by far the best way up The Goat - if you are on the island make the effort to get this one done. The famous jump is now more difficult and dangerous than it used to be due to the wider gap and smaller landing area - it makes MUCH more sense to climb across.
Lots of nice sections of climbing and great views, but overall too ledgy to be considered really brilliant. Still perhaps the best route on the Goat (at least of of the easier ones), but climbing-wise not on a par with some of the Henningvaer area routes.
This is a must do for Lofoten and well worth the 30 min slog up. On the initial approach you might think it looks very green, but on closer inspection it is clean. Some excellent positions high above Svolvae and only just 5a. Best done with a large group as an end of trip expedition!
Climbing across the horns wasn't too bad, but thought the ab off must have been a lot easier to sort out before the rockfall - my partner threaded the ropes in discomfort whilst dangling in the gap between horns! Thought the West Wall finish was fairly straightforward for 5+ and found the wide crack on pitch 4 to be the crux.
Climbed the route after some rain and a wet approach, but the rock wasn't too wet and the climbing was nice! Pitches 3 and 4 were really good, with crux sections in the beginning (for both), while pitch 5 was easier (although it's described as 5+).
Climbed it in quite wet and cold conditions but still good fun. Didn't find p5 harder than 3 & 4
Nice and easy, but so many people. My god, better to do it at midnight.
