FRI NIGHT VID: A valley under the radar - Uskedalen, Norway

Our Friday Night Video this week gives us an overview of Uskedalen in Western Norway. The area has a guidebook although sees very little traffic, despite the abundance of sunning 800m routes on moderate terrain and superb gear. Uskedalen is often referred to as 'Norway's Yosemite.'

The climbing season usually starts around mid-May and can last until mid-September. The region can get a lot of rain, so the film advises that a fishing rod and a fondness for tent life are essentials.

Uskedalen and Nisserdal are both incredible places. I would highly recommend both, though the weather can be problematic. Me and a friend headed out there last year and had a great time. I wrote an article for Alpkit...
If you're thinking of going but you're wanting to keep costs low (cos Norway's expensive, and as the value of GBP plummets going forward it's going to get more and more expensive for UK people), here's a plan to...
