there are a toll on the road to haegefjell that is the main area for both multipitch trad and excellent granite bouldering Details
the area has many smaller and bigger cliffs, cliffs ranging from 150 - 550 climbing meters, 3 - 15 pitches, nice granite bouldering, 2 small bolted sport climbing crags, and ice climbing during the winter season, to qoute famous yosemite climber ron kauk : "this is like home.... without the crowds"
DescriptionThe 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).
LocationApproach - 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.
