Just added a vidoe of my first real bouldering problem of the year. Don't know if I got the grade right, It's ungraded and i'm no expert. Check it out! It's quite original!
Take care!

Woops, this shop is cheaper (300NOK): http://www.oslosportslager.no/product/2732/7887/421474/Tindegruppa_NTNUI__Klatring_i_Trondheim__klatref%F8rer.html
...the websites selling these books are all in Norwegian, sorry. Tell me if you need help.

Most of the routes in Hell are quite difficult (Norwegian grades 8-9-10 i.e. French grades 7b-8c+) so I actually don't know many climbers to make videos of, for these routes. At the moment I'm also full-time worker so I should climb more than making guide books. But the authors of the book are very satisfied with it, so maybe they wouldn't see the point of making a new one :)
If you wanna see, I have a couple of short videos from Hell:

Rå nytelse (7c): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WSi2XfL3shM
Anyway, thanks for offering the lulu possibilities, and welcome to Hell ;)

(if you go Oslo-Trondheim by bus, you don't have to order, and it's about the same price (200-320NOK) depending on how/when/if you order.

Hell is definitely the best crag here for sport climbing, but there are other interesting crags too, although then you need a car.
I don't have the copyright for the guide book, so I can't publish anything, but the guide book is in combined Norwegian + English. Examples from the book:

You may buy the guide book from here: http://www.vpg.no/eshop/pub/engine.php?id=267 (350NOK = ca 45€).

There are about 100-150 routes in Hell, I guess. Don't know if it's easy to rent a bike there, but it's really not necessary when it's so close. You should walk/run and get exercise - we are the Viking country, you know... Hehe.

If you go Bergamo-Oslo for 10€ then I guess that's the cheapest. Then you might go with train or bus to Trondheim, and then by airport bus to our airport, only 15 mins walk from the crag. Or you might call some Norwegian climbers when you're here, we have cars and bikes and guide books.
Train Oslo-Trondheim can be ordered from
for 299NOK if you order early (i.e. at least some weeks before).

there's a train from oslo to trondheim and further to hell (only 25mins away from the city), i think it's around 300NOK (40€).
since hell is only 5mins away from the airport, taking a direct flight from italy to trondheim is sometimes the cheapest and definitely the fastest option. i took a direct flight torino-trondheim with Norwegian, and there are also some direct flights from venezia/roma/cagliari/pisa sometimes with SAS and Norwegian.
there's no campsite at the crag, but in Norway you can put up your tent anywhere (for example under the most overhanging routes, where it's dry even when it's raining). and there's even a toilet there.
the guidebook is not on the net, but it's possible to order it online (i think) although it's a quite heavy book with all crags in our area.
a car is not necessary if you're in touch with some climbers here! -and it's only 15mins walk to the airport, gas station and 10mins walk to a supermarket.

I posted your link on www.baurock.ru, which is a main rock climbing source in Russia.

Thanks 9b,

Nice site you've made. I didn't really climb in Siberia, though I spent many summers in the Altai mountains. Oddly enough, my climbing started in Ohio.

If anyone is interested in climbing in Siberia, Stolby near Krasnoyarsk would be the place to visit. Their climbing community exists for >150 years.

Yeah, It's a mad photo. It was in my tent after a ridge walk. A good laugh!

To get the rock picture uploaded I used the edit page appearance tab. Go to "theme settings" and at the part where it says page, there is an option to upload a photo. It takes a minute or two, but it's worth it.

Great Idea for a site! I can't belive no one thought of it before.

If I can figure out the email on here i'll try to send you the rock photo.

Take care man! Delete Comment

Io ad Albarracin la prima volta siamo stati in un appartamento ospitati la prima volta perchè c'erano amici che si sono fermati per un periodo prolungato.La seconda volta invece siamo andati in albergo sopra un alimentari che si chiama maison del gallo che con una spesa tra i 20 e i 25 euro a testa hai una bella camera con bagno tv e prima colazione.

there is some cool sport stuff in Alaska, but nothing spectacular. the rock is pretty crumbly. There is potential for some world class bouldering though, if the weather was a little better.

Yay! I can almost make an italian sentence. I don't actually have Skype. But I took Spanish in university and I speak French pretty fluently, so actually I can understand simple phrases in Italian. I'm trying to learn Korean and eventually if I ever have time, I want to learn some Chinese. Italian will probably have to wait until I move to a country where Italian is used. ): Maybe soon. I think I have to get away from Asia.

Sell on 9b your climbing topos to other world climbers !

27cragsclimbervoice8a and many others are amazing sites, but sometimes, expecially if you worked a lot to envision, bolt, clean routes or boulders, you want to monetize a little your efforts.

9b can help you in this aim.


As you can see here, in 9b there are many " topo groups ".


You can add a discussion in every "topo group".

In your discussion you can edit and publish your own climbing topoguide, as a "paywall", a "destination page", requiring climbers their payment by credit card or paypal to access and read, even on SMARTPHONES (iphones, android phones, ...)


After having paid, climbers can see, save and print your climbing topoguide.


In this discussion you can add:


1) PHOTOS regarding one specific SECTOR (of routes or bouldering, dws lines)


a) "PHOTO topo":

It's very easy to edit a photo topo:

- upload a photo of a rock in a topo group discussion

- drawn the lines

- write names and grades (an example…
