world CLIMBERS party
Hell, about 150 routes, is one of the best crags in his region for sport climbing.
Some Swedish climbers drive all the way from Umeå to Hell, a distance of 600 kilometers, just to climb there for a weekend.
Nice, steep climbing on awesome features.
Too easy for top climbers, too difficult for beginners (the climbs below 6a are not that interesting), while if you enjoy climbing in the level from 6c to 8a you'll have plenty of fun in Hell.
As long as it's dry :)
Close to Hell there are other interesting crags too, but to visit them you need a car.
In Hell a car is NOT necessary, because Hell climbing area is:
- 10 mins walking to a supermarket
- 15 mins walking from Trondheim Airport
- in case, 10 mins walking to a gas station
there's no campsite at the crag, but in Norway you can put up your tent anywhere, in Hell under the most overhanging routes, where it's dry even when it's raining and there's even a toilet.
Fly to Oslo, then:
A) from Oslo take a train (299 NOK if you order early, i.e. at least some weeks before) or/and bus (in this case You don't have to order, and it's about the same price, 200-320 NOK, depending on how/when) to Trondheim airport (only 25mins away from the city), it's around 300NOK (40€).
B) take a direct flight to Trondheim (with Norwegian, for example), sometimes the cheapest and definitely the fastest option.
There are also sometimes direct flights from Cagliari/Roma/Venezia/Pisa with SAS and Norwegian.
Most of the routes in Hell are quite difficult (Norwegian grades 8-9-10 i.e. French grades 7b-8c+).
