DJUPFJORD


The road towards Henningsvær crosses the narrow neck of Djupfjord on a causeway, and a quick 'eyes-left' reveals a mountainside of high quality granite running along the southern side of the fjord. These are the lower flanks of Budalstinen. Beyond the end of the fjord, and rising above the freshwater lake of Djupfjordvatnet (hidden from the road) is the great spur that forms the northwest buttress of Vågakallen which terminates in Point 713m, and is known to climbers simply as 'Pillaren' (the Pillar), it is home to one of the most sought-after routes on Lofoten; the great classic of Bare blåbær.
Bare blåbær and the routes on Pillaren and the eastern side of Budalstinden are approached by following the path along the northwestern shore of Djupford to the terminal moraine that cuts right across the valley - allow about an hour. Djupfjord Wall and Buttress, the Two Faces Face and Sjøsvaet (the Sea Slab) are reached from parking by the bend on the Henningsvær side of the causeway. Individual approaches are described with each cliff.
