Access Issue: there are a toll on the road to haegefjell that is the main area for both multipitch trad and excellent granite bouldering Details


The most popular route on Hægefjell, and one of the best introductions to multi-pitch climbing in Europe. Plenty of protection, good rock and easy climbing mean that this incredible route gets lots of ascents during the season and must be Norway's most popular multi-pitch route. There is no fixed gear on the route (except for stuck gear).


Approach - From the campground/parking
area follow a well-worn path rightwards along the base of the mountain gradually rising, passing some very good boulders. Then follow the path that leads along the start of the slabs to a ledge.
You can add two easy pitches to the start of the route by walking lower and further in the forest. Locate the crack system of Via Lara from the very bottom of the slabs.


Bring a full rack, and big gear will come in very handy
This is a fun route with great position.

We did this climb in 5 pitches with a 70m rope (Climbing until the rope ran out on pitch 2 and then to the obvious ledge/lower-angle-ground for pitch 3). I felt the crux difficulty was more on par with the Yosemite/Squamish 5.4-5.6 I have experienced. Also, the protection was extremely plentiful and bomber. Jul 25, 2016

This is a fun route with great protection on all pitches! We climbed this in 5 pitches with a 70m rope. I think this route is closer to a 5.5 than a 5.8! Great easy climb :) Jul 26, 2016
