At UKC we are all climbers and we understand the strong urge to be outdoors as the weather is finally improving.
Please proceed with caution though. More details.

Many climbs at grades 5 to 8-. Routes from 2 - 6 pitches with one 10 pitch traverse.
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.
Approach from the parking area into the forest heading to the right of the visible mountain. Very exposed. Abseil from the ridge on the south side, which is 2 pitches.
