Skill level
The North Ridge of Vågakallen is a physical demanding climb and requires climbers to be in good shape and comfortable following Norwegian Grade 4+ rock climbing. Please contact me if you have any questions on your skill level.

Starting time is dependent on weather, conditions, time of year, and number of climbers in the group. We average 10 – 13 hrs total time including descent.

Feel free to contact me for more details. Please note that I only organize private tours. Unfortunately, I can’t deal with clients looking to join groups. Thank you!


More info

I supply the Ropes, Rock Rack, and all technical equipment. Climbers will need to have rock shoes, harness, and helmet (rentals available). You will carry your own small backpack on this route with clothes, water, food, and light shoes for the descent. We supply the rest.
