Review
Geoff Hornby’s definitive guidebook to the superb ice-climbs of Norway’s Setesdal Valley features more than 150 routes between WI2 and WI6, stretching from Evje and Byglandsfjord in the south up to the ski resort of Hovden at the north end of the valley. It includes photo-topos, approach and descent information, as well as all the background that you need to plan an unforgettable, adventurous, yet easily accessible winter climbing holiday.

The guide also highlights some of the incredible potential for first-ascents of major icefalls in this exciting and developing venue.
