There are several cliffs in Akkerhaugen and a ton of potential! Look for roadside crags and looming cliffs overlooking Sauar river and Norsjø lake. Beautiful views and almost always sunny as it is east facing. Most areas are protected from the wind.

Getting There

The crux is pulling through the roof and transitioning into a layback. There are some solid foot holds and a nice sloper on the left side of the dihedral. Move left and onto the arête that leads to the top. Moving onto the arête provides some exciting exposure. A top-rope can be set up by climbing the chimney between the spire and the main wall....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
