Vågakallen - The North Ridge
Guided climbing trip:
The longest, easy route of the Lofoten, offers 13 pitches of real fun. Not only is the route long and exciting, but you have a view of most of West Lofoten. The "Old-man" is centrally located, between Kabelvåg and Henningsvær.
On the trip up you meet a lot of exciting but easy climbing, where a really fun chimney is the highlight. The trip is long and tough so this is reserved for the fit, but the climb itself should be easy for most people. The question is whether you dare to jump over a 1.5 meter long gap at the end?
Join a wonderful adventure.
duration: approximately 12 - 18 hours.
level: Easy climbing, but you must be in good shape. There are some difficult points on the route, and the crux is perhaps the famous gap you have to jump just before the top. The route is in grade 5.5 (4b+).
weather dependent: Yes, in case of bad weather there will be no trip.
place of attendance: We meet at the parking lot on the north side of the pier over Djupfjorden. The parking lot is used by many climbers, so park sensible. We start the trip between 5 - 8, depending on weather conditions and the group.
