Some corrections to the Lofoten guide

Page 118
Automatic for the People is 45m not 30m. There are fixed signs at bottom and top warning of this.

Page 144
Bare Blabaer P1 and 2 are more like 20m and 46m. P5 and p6 are not well protected.

Page 191
The positions Gollum and Smeagul are reversed, their positions should be swapped – as should the grades on the topo. Smeagul is route-line 9 and Gollum is route-line 10 – the descriptions are correct.

Page 204
Gaukerisset – the upper abseil point is right of the finish of the route. The lower abseil point has been moved and is now two bolts on the left side (looking down) of the gully

Storsvaet is very poorly protected and not really a good beginner’s climb, at least on the sharp end.

Page 320 and 321
The two red number 3 route dots should be number 4s since they are showing the rough line of Englevinger which is properly described on the next page 322.
