EGGUM


A rarity on Lofoten, a selection of hard, ever-dry sport routes, tucked away on the northeast coast of Vestvågøya. The crag was discovered by Andreas Christiansen in 2002. Together with Knut Storvik he bolted what would become Gullfaks in early 2003. In February (there is a little daylight) Eggulf became the first route on the cliff, though most of the development took place in summer 2005 when Knut, with Andreas and Odd-Roar Wiik, took the place by storm.
