Þorskur á þurru landi M 4

Route number F5 in the photo.

Half bolted drytooling route, bolts are only in the first half and then the rest is on traditional protection. Interesting character in this route, axe holds are usually quite good but foot holds are bad. The route is in a kind of a corner between collumns so stemming is in some parts an option.

Ísaðar gellur M 6

Route number F6 in the photo.

Halfbolted drytooling route like Þorskur á þurru landi (F5). Opposite of F5, this route has quite bad axe placements but good foot holds to compensate. The difficulty is roughly the same.

FA: Unknown

Messaguttinn M 6

Route number F7 in the photo.

Bolted top anchor above a tight crack in a small corner that has at least been climbed on top rope. The route starts in an overhanging wedge. This route can be bolted and redpointed if some one is interested. Difficulty around M6-7.

There is a slight chance this is a route by Jón Heiðar Andrésson that is called Skitið í buxurnar. Jón Heiðar on the other hand doesn’t remember this accent
