(The Tromsø Express) A fine route up the most prominent of the parallel grooves in the centre of the cliff. Three well-protected crack pitches make for a great route.<br/>1) N6, 40m. Climb the black slab, step right and make a quick pull into the base of the groove. Follow it by laybacking and jamming to its top. Step right and climb up into a thin left-facing groove which leads to an excellent belay ledge on the left.<br/>2) N6, 30m. From the right end of the ledge, climb a thin vertical crack just to the left of a grassy groove. Continue up cracks and flakes then move right onto a sloping belay ledge.<br/>3) N5, 25m. Step right, climb the left side of the flake, then finger jam up an arching thin crack on the left.
FA. Håvard and Sjur Nesheim 1979 or 1980. They may have used a different finish to the one described.,FA. (Pitch 2) Ed Webster, Thorbjørn Enevold 1993
