Crag features

A major crag with long multipitch trad classics at a range of grades. Many routes have belay/abseil stations. Bolts are often present where there is lack of trad gear protection.

Good topo here:

There is also the Gå Telemark guide, which is a definitive guide. It uses either Nordic or UIAA grades. The latter being due to many first ascents being German. 

The Rockfax miniguide is a selected guide and contains far fewer routes than the free guide (although it is the only guide in English).

There is also excellent bouldering in the area, which is covered in the Klatrefører for Telemark and Klatrefører for Telemark guides.

More recent new routes for Hægefjell are here:

Approach notes

Be careful of sat nav routings as the Fjone-Framness ferry does not run late in the evenings and the subsequent detour is quite long. If travelling from Oslo its better to approach from the South, which is virtually the same time, without a ferry crossing.

There's a charge for wild camping in the area so bring cash. 2018: 40 NOK a night.

Note that the approach road is closed during winter. Remember to pay road toll. 2018: 70 NOK
