Rorvika is comprised of a large granite ridge that sits above a beautiful beach. There are several different crags on the large wall, and the west ridge itself is an interesting scramble in an amazing setting. The upper wall is where most of the routes lie, but the lower wall has a trio of classic single pitch cracks that beg to be climbed.

The entire wall is south facing and catches all day sun. I dare to say that it can actually be a bit hot on a bright sunny day. The lower wall does go into the shade late in the afternoon, so depending on the weather, you have a choice.

Getting There 

The ridge forms a south western facing corder where the E10 road turns up and north toward Lingvaer. There are several pullouts available for parking - the one you pick will depend on which part of the wall you want to visit. See individual areas for more detail.
