Crag features

Mainly single pitch mid-range routes but some multi-pitch too. A mixture of sport and trad. Many strong lines. The left-hand end of the crag is natural rock, whereas the central and right-hand ends are primarily quarried. Some routes can be a little slow to dry after rain due to tree cover. Nearly all routes (including trad) have lower-off bolts.

Numerous routes have been established since the publication of the 2009 Drammensgranite guidebook and are described here:

There are also a couple of ice routes here.

Approach notes

Just off the E18 on the eastern side of Drammensfjorden. Park well back inside the bus layby. The approach takes a matter of minutes.

Restricted Access

Peregrine Falcons are nesting in the vicinity of Midtsektoren / Kløfta. As a result there should be no climbing on the sectors right of Skytebanesektoren until 15th July. Ie the routes described in the guidebook are unrestricted, and routes described in the updates are restricted. 

A new tunnel is currently being built beneath the crag so there is a lot of construction work in the area until 2018. It's still possible to climb in all parts, however the parameter tape to the site shouls not be crossed.
