Beyond Geitvika is a rocky ridge that runs down the hillside towards the sea. Tucked in beyond this is a set of short sheltered walls that were developed in 2007 with a small collection of climbs. Interestingly, this was first discovered and climbed on by Anders Lundquist and Johan Sandberg in the 1990s. They called the cliff the Hamlet Wall but, when questioned, that was about all they could remember - the routes they did must have made quite an impression! Reports from people who have hiked in to repeat these routes suggests that they are not really up to the usual Lofoten standard.
