Access Issue: Private Property Details
Rock faces of Uskedalen are privately owned by the farmers and so are many of the approaches. Tread lightly and keep a low profile.
Locals call it the Yosemite of Norway, without the crowds. You may come across one other party, but you'll likely only see sheep. The place offers pristine cracks with surprisingly good granite friction. Routes go from short, a couple pitches to 20 pitch grade IVs. Development is relatively new, within the last two decades. If only it didn't get so much rain....
There's great camping by the coast, right off the main road, at the Mouth of the valley, Rabben Campground. Showers and laundry are available. From the main road its about a 15 to 30 minute drive, depending on where you want to climb. For more details get the The Bergen Climbing Clubs book, Klatrefører for Uskedalen.
