As the Henningsvær road heads round the bend from Rørvika it passes a series of ribs and buttresses that fall from the crest of Sørfjellet far above. There is a lot of impressive undeveloped rock around here.
The second ridge is home to the awe-inspiring roof-crack of one of Lofoten's hardest routes.
Well to the left of Maurpillaren and Pianokrakken, are two long, rocky ridges. The right-hand one features a conspicuous scar from a rockfall, and the left-hand one has a small set of routes.
Further south from the Sauegjerderyggen and high above the road is a good clean slab of rock which has potential for new routes. The slab is tricky to spot from below, but is located to the north of the Pedersen ryggen, which is the long rocky ridge with huge caves on its right-hand side, to the left of Maurpillaren and Pianokrakken.
