Project Description

SHORT CLIMBING COURSE

  • Intro to real climbing

  • Reach one summit

This course is short but packed with learning. No prior experience is needed. We practice in climbing fields for two days and climb a real peak the last day.

ABOUT

Our short climbing course gives you an introduction to mountain climbing. It is similar to the three first days of the mountain climbing course, and you might come back later to continue.

Two of the days are of moderate challenge while the last day is either challenging or tough, depending on the choice of peak.

If you want to taste real climbing this is the course for you.

PROGRAM

We meet in the morning. After an introduction of each others and going through the program, we start learning about equipment and knots.

The rest of the day will be used at the climbing field called Tronoberget. Here we will be top-roping and practice use of the equipment and climbing techniques.

Also this day will be at the climbing field. We will progress on climbing techniques, how to secure each others, and establishing belay stations.

Now we are ready to climb a mountain. We drive into Jotunheimen National Park and possible mountains might be Vesle Galdhøpiggen (2369 m), Store Austabotntind (2204 m), Store Dyrhaugsryggen (2147 m). The course leader decides which mountain to climb based on weather, conditions and wishes from clients. This day is rather long and demanding.

INCLUDES

We always use certified guides. In addition, this activity includes hire of climbing equipment (helmet, harness, carabiners, ropes). But you need to bring your own climbing shoes.

Look at the FAQ section below for a detailed list of equipment you need to bring yourself.
