Description 

The Kjerag massiv, which is located in Lysefjord, is ca. 5 km long and about 1,000m reaching straight out of the water. Kjerag is made up of high quality granite and is home to numerous big wall routes along with some of the worlds longest ice/mixed routes. The area is best known for Kjeragbolten and for BASE jumping and high-lining above the abyss.


Getting There 

Either drive from Stavanger (ca. 2 hours) but note that the road is closed in the winter. Or take a ferry to Lysebotn. It is usually possible to hire a boat to the bottom of the wall, or bribe some BASE jumpers to get you there.

The first ascent party used 4 days on the wall with 3 bivis.An impressive line up one of the most exposed walls in Norway. The route is mostly clear of water seepage, and is dry for most of the summer. The route follows a system of dihedrals and cracks that start on the grassy ledges approximately 200 yards up and to the right of Geitaneset. High quality granite starts at about the 6th pitch. The hardest pitches (both free and technical) are well protected in solid rock. The technical crux ...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
