Lyngen - Kvalvik

Kvalvik has a high concentration of good routes - we reckoned at least eight and all a couple of pitches at least.  Parking is just at the end of the nearest road.

We did four routes here, all very good, but the best of the best, Cathedral, is the northernmost route and starts higher than the rest.

The southern set of routes.  The far left route one looked to be accessed via a tight gulley.

The centre route went at approx WI 4+

The northern set of routes, all in the WI 4/5 range:
Taken in 2017 (a thinner year than normal)

Cathedral, 170m, WI 4+

Passing the Cathedral

...and belaying in the Chapel!

Classic route!
