<< Bare blåbær < Filling in the Blanks  |  Triumfbuen > There is to Do >>

This is the parallel crack system between Bare blåbær and the 'Black Arch'. It features some excellent hand-jamming, but there is also a difficult thin crack, plus a long unprotected off-width pitch. Carry tiny wires and a good selection of cams. If the first pitch is blocked, it might be worth starting up Triumfbuen, though this does miss out some of the hard climbing.<br/>1) N4, 26m. Climb the first short pitch of Bare blåbær.<br/>2) N6, 44m. Jam up the finger-crack at the start of Bare blåbær pitch 2, then traverse right across the face into a thin crack, or go direct - bold. Climb this then make a hard traverse into the perfect crack on the right. Take a semi-hanging belay here.<br/>3) N6, 50m. Continue up the superb crack system which starts as a hand-crack then slowly becomes thinner until it narrows to a thin seam just above the Black Arch. Make off-balance jamming moves up the thin crack to the bolted belay at the top of pitch 4 of Bare blåbær, or in the cracks just below this.<br/>4) N4+, 45m. A long and unprotected off-width leads up the upper side of the huge detached flake above. Belay at the top of the flake. Abseil from the bolts over to the left or:<br/>5) and 6) Finish up Bare blåbær.
FA. (Middle section - the traverse and hand-crack) Odd-Roar Wiik, Jørgen Sundby, Borghild Hansen 7.1989. FA. (as described) Thorbjørn Enevold, Per Kylner, Jenny Gustavsson 8.7.1993


Pitch 2 is well protected with small cams, and the second can be well protected by placing a high piece in the crack above the belay. Pitch 3 is stellar, and made easier by stemming into the great arch!
