A rarity on Lofoten, a selection of hard and ever-dry sport routes, tucked away on the northeast coast of Vestvågøya, far enough from the trad climbing heartlands not to cause too much of a fuss. The crag was discovered by Andreas Haug Christiansen in 2002. Together with Knut Storvik he bolted what would become Gullfaks in early 2003. In February (well there is a little daylight) Eggulf became the first completed route on the cliff, though most of the development took place in the summer of 2005 when Knut, along with Andreas and Odd-Roar Wiik took the place by storm.
The locals have made two very reasonable requests:
1) No chipping on existing or new climbs
2) If you find quick-draws in place on a route, please leave them there.
