The Blade in Molladalen
Guided climbing trip:
The Blade is perhaps Molladalen's most distinctive rock formations, and is a favourite destination for the mountain loving people of Sunnmøre.
The Blade was first climbed as far back as 1929 by Adolf Ljaaen and Reiulf Hagen.
When walking to the Blade, we walk through the beautiful Molla-valley, and on to Mohns-couloir. From here it is not far to either Mt.Rander or Mt.Mohn and the view of the Hjørundfjord is absolutly fantastic.
