<< Straight Albatross < Wandering Albatross | Four Pitch Route > Riz Raz >>
85m. (Four Tries) A sustained crack climb, the crux of which might require a bit of staying power.
1) 6-, 35m. Climb up the wide crack in an orange corner on the right side of the wall to a small ledge. Belay here or continue up the wider cracks leading up leftwards to a stance.
2) 5+, 30m. Up finger-cracks to easier climbing which leads to a large, sloping ledge below the final steep wall which is split by a single, beautiful, and yet quite intimidating, crack.
3) 7-, 20m. The very strenuous widening crack in the centre of the steep wall gives a tussle - big cams help.

Just left of the start of this route, me and Ketil Lunde added an alternative start. We called this Byger and gave it the grade 6-. This was done in 1995. 2 pitches of nice climbing before it joins Fire Forsøk for the last pitch. Fairly obvious line...

No big cams needed on the last pitch. One big cam (friend #3.5 or #4) helps on the first pitch.

Jonas is right, even if the last pitch looks wide from the street, it is in fact a very nice fingercrack. In my opinion the best route on Store Festvag and much more class then Lundeklubben. If you are looking for Crack Climbing.
