Watching the ‘footie’ in Henningsvear after a great day out with Tony and Spike on Presten West Pillar, 467 metres of impeccable climbing. The easiest sections are VS, but very few and overall the climb is graded E2 5b, six to eight hours and allow two hours for a leisurely descent. Start early to avoid too much heat on a good day. We managed the first four pitches before the sun hit us. It is of course possible at any time at this time of the year! Spike and Tony also climbed Ypperstepresten E1 5b over four pitches of delectable and well protected climbing. This climb leads to a big ledge (Storhylla) from where it is possible to follow a simple bolt and chain abseil descent.
