What's in this Area?
The route starts out on a windscoured face that is a NW aspect, but is often wind loaded and unsafe. the top of the decent is a cliff band, with a windloaded gully. there are two entrances to the gully, which is about 300' long. The mouth of the gully opens up into floral park fairway, which is a steep treed run.[more]
Romsdalen is an ideal climbing and skiing destination in Norway. It is easily accessible by train from either Oslo or Trondheim (nsb.no) or fly to Mølde. The access town is Åndalsnes. Most of the back country skiing needs a car but it is easy to hitch hike in this area because most locals are avid skiers/climbers and work offshore in the North Sea so they work 2 weeks then have 4 weeks free, so it isn't a problem to hitch. If you like warm, 24 hour light skiing. There is a road called Trollstigen that opens end of May or early June where you can ski right from your car at 2am. The best time for skiing here is spring..march, april. You ski right up from the fjord so each peak has amazing views. The classic mountain is Kirketakke. I think Vengatind, Nonstind, and Finnan are also classics with over 1000 m runs.
