Can we climb in Freyr all year round? When is the best time for climbing in Freyr?

While some individuals do engage in climbing activities in Freyr throughout the year, it's important to consider the weather conditions for a comfortable and safe experience.

The optimal climbing season in Freyr generally extends from March to November. During this period, the weather is more favorable, and climbing conditions are usually enjoyable. However, it's important to note that as temperatures drop significantly, especially from mid-November, the experience might become less pleasant and potentially hazardous. Climbing activities may resume in March, depending on weather improvements.
