Romsdal is home to some of the most famous climbing areas in Norway such as Romdalshornet and Trollveggen (The Troll Wall). Romsdal has everything from sport climbs and long alpine mountaineering routes, to tons of ice and mixed climbs, and even big wall routes up to 78 pitches!
While you might be able to climb as early as march, it is advised to wait until at least June. In general, July and August are the best months to climb.

"Std Route" on Romsdalhorn Easy 5th 1+ 3 I 5 M 1c PG13  Europe : Norway : ... : Romsdalhorn(et)
Ascend the ridge from the South/East side with easy hiking. Continue up the ridge until one has to cross through a "gap" at the base of the steeper upper wall. One usually ropes up here. Continue up the steeper, but relatively easy ( 5.3-5.4) rock. After a few short pitches ( we had a 130ft rope) move up right in a large, wide open corner system ( 5.5 move) to regain the ridge. Thence easily to the huge summit cairn. WEATHER CAN CHANGE VERY QUICKLY....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
