Many climbs at grades 5 to 8-. Routes from 2 - 6 rope lengths with one traverse at 10 lengths. Approach from the parking area into the forest heading to the right of the visible mountain. Very exposed, most climbs start quite slack on the slab building up to vertical. Rapell from the ridge at the south side on a route which is 2 rope lengths.
The routes are included in the Oslo guide. There is also some bouldering in the area, which is covered in the Drammen guide (although no grades are documented).
Ice also forms in winter. Den Hvite Stripa in particular offers thin, technical climbing
The gravel road leads to a large parking area by a lake and some cabins. The road is unmanned but a payment of 50kr is required to park where money is left in an envelope and posted before driving the gravel road.
