Description

Molladalen is the most well-known climbing crag in the Sunnmøre alps. Molladalen (the Molla"valley") is a mountain valley surrounded by a steep and scarred alpine ridge, with a high density of climbing routes that tops out on the various peaks and pinnacles.

There is a camp site by Storevatnet, but this is basically nothing more than a place to put up your tent, so bring all you need.

The weather changes rapidly in the mountains, and the west coast is notorious for its bad weather. Snow can fall here almost any month of the year, and fog is frequent and very thick. This is backcountry, so be prepared!

Getting There

Nearest airports are Aalesund (Vigra) and Hovden (Ørsta/Volda). From Ørsta: drive E39 north, take off to Barstavik, and up the valley. From Ålesund: take the E39 south, take the ferry from Solevåg to Festøy, and continue south, and you will reach Barstavik quickly. Head up the valley to Melbøsætra.

From Melbøsætra there is 2h walking to Molladalen. Parts of this track is through exposed terrain, so good hiking skills and equipment is needed.
