(The East Ridge) A classic line on great rock and with fantastic positions. The climbing is quite sustained and exposed and can be done in anything between five and ten pitches with some simul-climbing along the way depending on the team's ability/confidence. For a bigger day out, this route can be combined with the Nordøsteggen route on the Sildpollentinden (page 364) which is reached by descending the rocky ridge to the southwest - scrambling, with possible short abseils over rocky steps.
Start where the ridge steepens and climb it (N4-) to a crack. Head up this to the bulges, then climb rightwards through these (N4+) to easier ground. Continue up the crest to the first summit (N4-). Head along the near horizontal ridge (a path in places) to a short tricky crack (N4+), continuing past a very narrow section and on to the broader ridge. Continue up the buttress following the easiest line, initially up groove to the right of the crest (N5-). Climb up another groove in the crest leading to a short traverse left to access the ridge leading to the summit. © Rockfax
