Description 

This is a little known area between Bø i Telemark and Notodden. There is a lot of potential but not a lot of established climbs. This is most likely due to the fact that there is so much great climbing in Norway and Sauherad isn´t a particularly known area. Despite this fact, climbing is excellent and some routes have been established recently by local climbers. The rock is solid and there are all types of climbing grades and styles. Everything from Beginner routes to difficult aid lines.

Getting There 

Sauherad county is located between Bø i Telemark and Notodden. You can get here via bus, train, or car, although a car is highly recommended for getting around once you are here as there aren´t that many buses that drive by during the day.

Climbing Season
