This is the definitive guidebook describing the rock climbing and sport climbing in Setesdal Valley in southern Norway. Setesdal is located to the southwest of Oslo, and is one of Norway’s most accessible climbing areas from the rest of Europe. Granite domes are dotted along the valley providing excellent slab, wall and crack climbing, ranging from single pitch to multi-pitch routes up to 18 pitches long. There is a mixture of traditional and sport routes, with the route lengths ranging from single pitch to multi-pitch routes up to 18 pitches long. The climbing is spread across a wide range of grades with lots of routes between Norwegian 5 to 7 (English VS to E2/3 or French 4+ to 6c).
At the start of each section there is a location map, access information, and a description of the style and aspect of the climbing to be found, along with some general descent information. The guidebook describes around 500 routes with more than 1,500 pitches, with all the routes shown on colour photo topos.
Published in 2013 the guidebook is written in Norwegian, German and English throughout.
