The Lanterna couloir.

From the Kvaløya Archives: Lanterna is a very distinguishable pointy top tucked away between Kjølsvinet and Styrhuset. The Lanternarenna is the obvious aproach and return gully, which should be treated with respect as it is fairly steep. Bring sturdy shoes when there is snow in the gully.

200 m, trad, V-, Arild Meyer and Sjur Nesheim, 1976-08-02

An easy and airy classic. Be careful on the approach/descent via Lanternerenna, it is steep and the snow may be hard (only snow free in the late summer). First winter ascent by Magnar Osnes and Christian Korvald, 1986-03-24.
