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.
