Hell is a curious crag. It is rather ugly, scruffy, mossy. The nearby airport detracts from the otherwise idyllic woods and knolls. You will end up projecting a few grades below your usual level because of the precise and fussy climbing style. But, when you do send it, you'll rave about what a great climb it was.

Hell is a short, conglomerate crag developed in the 90s. The routes at the most are 20m tall, and most really are only 25-40 feet tall. It is polished, humid, and deceptively difficult. All holds look fine from below, but moving your feet up on them is another matter.

Hell is overall a nice place to train near Trondheim, but not a world class destination. If you are flying into Værnes to go to Flatanger, you may as well go to Hell because it is within walking distance. You'll get two opposite styles.

Getting There 

Get to Hell, the town. Go east out of town, left on Fv26, and then right on the second actual road. First right down a gravel road and park in the big flattened area below the house and east of the soccer field. Follow the signs. It's about 5 minutes hike to the crag.
