Crag features

Oslo's oldest climbing area and the most developed in the area with over 200 routes. Predominantly trad routes with a selection of good sport climbs.

Wall heights range from 12 to 60 meters with the Østveggen containing the longest routes. The most area is Øvre Sydstup, which has the best rock, although sport climbs at the left end of Nedre Sydstup are also becoming popular.

Major sectors:

Øvre Sydstup - All the way to the top. Single pitch routes around 25m height. Popular and excellent trad climbs on solid rock. Sometimes there are courses at weekends in vicinity of Hollywood.

Nedre Sydstup - Long wall below the top wall. Loose trad routes, and more recently developed sport routes at the left hand end. Online guide here. The crag becomes very busy at weekends due to the broad range of grades and closely spaced bolting.

Østveggen - East facing wall. Primarily long trad routes, including multipitch. Also some sport routes (mainly n7- upwards). Some suspect / loose rock but some good routes nonetheless. The trad routes can often feel hard for the grade as well as more serious.

Dalbokollen - An isolated buttress north of Østveggen. East facing. Rarely visited due to loose rock. Multipitch trad routes. The area isn't covered in the latest guidebook but the section from the previous guide is available here

Den Skjulte Veggen - Take a right after stairs on the way to the top by the creek. Also covered online here. Rarely visited. Hard sport and trad routes.

Approach notes

For all sections except for the left hand end of Nedre Sydstup: Take the T-Bane to Hauger on the Kolsås line. There's residential parking in the area but in a lot of streets the parking is forbidden. Follow the path that continues from Toppåsveien.

For the left hand end of Nedre Sydstup: Take the T-Bane to Kolsås and cut into the woods on Mosebakken by the stadium and carpark. Parking here is fine, although can fill up at weekends
