The Pels of the Fisk
<< Set Trippin' < Daei! | None > None >>
Another route in the hard and wild mould, with some desperate jamming in an out-there situation. The name means The Scales of the Fish - in Norwenglish!
Start as for the previous climb.
1) 4+, 45m. As for Daei!
2) 3, 25m. As for the second pitch of Daei! but scramble to the highest point of the ledge and a tree belay.
3) 6, 30m. Climb cracks left of the arete, heading for the big roofs, until it is possible to move right past a big loose block and climb out to a small stance on the edge of the void.
4) 8, 25m. Make an alarming leftwards traverse above the roof to reach a sharp-edged flake, from where a long and blind reach gains the bottom of the jamming crack. Thug up this (desperate) until things begin to ease (after about 8m) at which point easier climbing leads up the groove to a grassy exit onto a ledge.
5) 5+, 25m. Move left along the ledge and climb the short corner to the top.
