Description 

Dirdalsveggen offers really nice granite climbing, mostly cracks and corners and often with nice exposure. The wall is about 200m high and is about 10 minutes from the approaching road.

Reportedly, most routes are good. Topos available in the free guide

Getting There 

See the free guide for a map.

Take 45 east through Dirdal past the church on your left. When you see the entrance to the museum on your right, turn left and park in the obvious spot (it's marked "fisk parkering" (fishing parking) or something - a picture of a fish).

Continue across the bridge on foot and cut left through the field with the open gate just before reaching the second house (if you start winding right up a narrow path, you've gone too far). The path will lead you to a closed gate which you cross over in to an area full of sheep. About 2/3rds of the way through the sheep field, you will see a large pile of rocks on the right (at the base of the forest slope below the wall). This should also be marked by a cairn. Follow faint paths up here to the base of the wall, staying mostly left to avoid cliffs.

Two pitches of what would be nice climbing if it wasn't completely overgrown lead to an easy traverse and then up and right to the heart of the route: two awesome long pitches (50m 10b and 40m 10a) of mostly corner and crack climbing. Typical Norwegian granite, there are face holds and great edges for stemming.Note: from the end of the traverse, heading straight up the obvious corner is Comfortably Numb. På Kanten traverses out right on flakes and cracks., Consider climbing the much cleaner fi...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
