(Daughters of the Moon) This route has always played second fiddle to Solens sønner but after the typical Lofoten start, it develops into a great climb. It ascends the cliff's central crack system and the middle of the huge upper slab. Above the starting ledge is a right-facing flake with shrubbery - this is it.
1) 6- 24m. Climb up behind the flake, up a slab, through a bush, and then up a short, strenuous and muddy fist-crack to easier ground and a belay on flakes.
2) 5+, 30m. Continue up a grassy crack, then climb its bushy continuation crack which becomes a perfect clean finger-crack leading to a large belay ledge.
3) 5+ 30m. Climb up the slab above (just right of a bush) to a horizontal crack. Clip a high bolt, then step right and climb up a clean slab to a ramp protected by a second bolt. Now move up right to a tiny foothold belay stance (fixed nuts) at the base of the upper finger-crack.
4) 6- 55m. Climb the upper finger-crack until it ends, then move up and left then back right, past two spaced bolts, to a sloping ledge with a double-bolt belay.

Pitch 4 is WAY runout; everything else is reasonable.
