Description

Hornaksla is the huge massif that appears til høyre (on the right) as you drive towards Åndalsnes. It is the largest, most impressive looking wall rising out of the valley floor, until you see Trollveggen that is. However, the climbing on Hornaksla is about a million times more inviting than on the troll wall.

Hornaksla offers fantastic, long routes on superlative granite. Climbers flock to Romsdalen to climb HERE. This wall holds some of the very best multi-pitch granite routes I have climbed in Norway.

Hornaksla faces south, so it gets full sun. However, the narrow valley can act as a wind tunnel so be prepared to be blasted up high if you can feel a gentle breeze down low. The best time to climb is in the summer.

Descent: There are three main ledge systems. They all have chain and bolt anchors that take you down the wall (between ledge systems). You need double 50ms to make these rappels. With double 70ms you can rappel from the highest ledge to the bottom in 4 rappels, but you have to know where you are going. In general, find the one sport climb up the face (Sagrada Familia) and follow it down, stopping at each anchor.

Getting There

Park as close as you can get. The road was under construction last time I was there, so I don't know where the nearest parking is. Should be available within a few hundred meters. You can't miss the wall.
