(The Bell Ringer) A popular set of pitches on the upper central portion of Presten, up a parallel crack/groove system just to the left of Vestpillaren's upper section, rejoining it below the Slanting Corner.
1 - 4) 5+/6, 145m. Climb the start of Vestpillaren or use Original starten for a bit of variety.
5) 5-, 50m. Storhylla is split towards its right side by a slab. Climb up to the right side of the slab (passing left of an abseil anchor), then traverse left across the slab for 10m until you can climb up through blocks and grass to the base of a black section of rock slightly on the left. Face climb up this and belay at the foot of a right-facing groove at the right margin of the large, smooth face.
6) 6-, 35m. Excellent climbing up the groove above the belay for 10m, then face climb up and right into another prominent, left-facing corner system. Belay on a small ledge on the right at a flake.
7) 6-, 40m. Step back left into the corner, climb past some loose rock, then head over a bulge to enter the next groove (also left-facing). Climb this to two large stacked flakes and pass these carefully to a tiny ledge down on the left with a fixed belay.
8) 7-, 24m. Follow a shallow corner up and right to a fingertip crack with thin moves and excellent climbing up to a short crack on the right (fixed piton) continue to the roof then move right to the stance on Vestpillaren.
9 to 12) 6, 160m. Finish up Vestpillaren.
