This is a comprehensive guidebook covering the main sport climbing areas in Norway. In total there are 31 separate sport climbing areas with 1,000’s of routes detailed. The vast majority of the routes detailed in this guidebook are single pitch sport routes, though there are a few traditional routes and short multi-pitch routes. Symbols indicate if traditional gear is required. The range of routes covered is from Norwegian 5- to 9+ that equates to French 5a to 8c. All the routes are given Norwegian grades though there is a good grade converter table at the start of the guidebook.
Many of these sport climbing areas are in the south of Norway between Oslo and Bergen, which are easily accessible from the rest of Europe. The areas covered are close to the following towns and cities: Ostfold, Oslo, Oppland, Buskerud, Vestfold, Telemark, Agder, Hordaland, Sogn Og Fjordane, Romsdal, Trondelag, Nordland, Troms, and Finnmark.
At the start of each climbing area is a location map and access information. All the routes are shown on colour photo topos, with symbols indicating if the route is bolted or requires traditional gear.
