Video Source: YouTube

Pete and Mari make the second ascent of Harpunrisset a classic multipitch in Gloppendalen. The crux pitch is a steep hand and fist crack to offwidth (the Leisure Box) and climbs at 7b. All but the crux pitch was freed back in 1993. A few weeks ago Jon Egil and Yazzaman made the first full free ascent. A fantastic route and a very clean crux pitch. we would recommend! We swung leads all the way up, Mari took the first pitch, Pete took the short second pitch, Mari took the third steep crux pitch, and Pete linked the final two pitches together to create one final Irish mega pitch.
