Pitch 6 classic 5-7 slab climbing. Many folks were skipping the last two pitches of the climb and rapping down from after pitch 5. I recommend pitch 6 and 7. Classic slab and great views from the end of the climb.

Comments: We stayed in a small cabin at the campground Orsvagvaer. About $80 per night split between 2 of us. The cabin had 4 bunks, a small table and chairs, fridge, hot plate, and heater. There was a larger communal kitchen to use if we wanted more elaborate meals. Showers at the main building were included along with Wi Fi and a communal computer. To learn more go to www.orsvag.no

Comments: There is also free camping near Kalle, a small village located between Svolvaer and Henninsgvaer. The camping here seemed much more sheltered then the camping near Hennigsvaer. There is a toilet at this camping area but I have heard it is overused. A car is a must if you camp here.

Comments: This climb is crowded. We got there early (10am) and were the first ones on the route. Most people wait for the afternoon sun to hit around 1pm.

Comments: Did this route yesterday. I have small hands. Seemed like 10c to me. Trickey moves through the pods and then pretty tight hands. Possibly ring locks for bigger hands? Definitely more difficult then Generic Crack at the Creek.

Comments: I climbed Primrose last Sunday with Mike Munger. We had done the route 2 years ago when the last piece of fixed protection on the Ear was a piton that was sticking out the rock. We had not brought a big bro to protect the last 15 ft of this pitch and Mike spent much time at that piton summoning the nerve to climb that 15 ft.

We returned this year, armed with a #4 big bro to protect the end of the Ear pitch. Mike was very much excited to challenge himself by freeclimbing the ear while pla... more >>
