Description

I invite you to climb Stetind (1392 m) South Pillar, one of the most classic multipitch climbing routes in Norway. It’s a perfect program for experienced climbers.

Stetind is also Norway’s national mountain. This high granite monolith peak has an obelisk shape that makes it a unique mountain. Also, the view from the summit is simply amazing!

We will enjoy a fantastic climb with about 14 pitches, climbing up to Norwegian grade 6. However, most of the pitches are in the 4 and 5 area.

The route follows the marked pillar that sticks out from the south face of the mountain. Then, it follows slabs, cracks and dihedrals on pure granite from a ridge known as Kongelosjen, about 900 meters about sea level, all the way to the top of Stetind.

During this day climb, we will ascend about 1400 meters. It will be approximately 10 kilometres in length. It will take us about 10 to 14 hours in total, getting to the summit and back.

Please note that in order to join this tour, you need to be in good shape. Most important, you must be used to hiking and scrambling in exposed and airy terrain. Also, you must feel comfortable climbing at Norwegian grade 6 (French 6A).

So contact me if you want to join me in this 1-day climb to Stetind! I will be happy to answer any questions you may have about the program. I also offer a guided ascent to Stetind by the Normal Route. Check it out!

About the guide

guide profile img

I was born and raised in the town of Narvik in northern Norway. As the case has been with generations of norwegians, my parents took me with them on trips into nature and up on the mountains even before I was able to walk by myself. When I was able to stand up, my father bought me my first pair of slalom skis and we went skiing in the slopes on the local resorts. From there, the love of nature and the mountains has continuously grown and eventually evolved into a wish to bring others and let them experience and explore together with me.

Today nature and the mountains are my "office", where I work all year round with guiding, as an instructor and tutor on different courses and as an observer for the avalanche forecasting service. Over the years I have worked and guided all over Norway, but it is the north that is home and here I spent most of my time. So come with me into nature and up on the mountains and explore the wild nature of northern Norway. Skitours in Narvik and Lyngen or climbs to Norway's national mountain of Stetind are just some of the adventures I can offer you, but the mountains up here in the north are almost limitless in abundance and possibilities.
