Eidetind - a beautiful introduction.
Guided climbing trip:
Do you want a long and varied day in the mountains? This is the introduction to proper rock climbing. Throughout the day we will take you on an amazing adventure. We are going to climb delicious cracks, creepy slabs and fine dihedrals. We start the day with the routes hardest section before moving from rock climbing to mountaineering between loose rocks, grass and narrow ridges. The mountain has several varied routes of good quality and there are different levels of difficulty. The trip takes us all the way to the top of Mt. Eidetind before we reach a beautiful travers ending on the top of Mt. Stortind. Before the end of the trip, we take the trip up to Kjerna, the spectacular "preikestolen" of Ofoton.
Which route we choose depends on your skills and wishes. The mountain is accessible and offers nice climbing not far from the E6, but still in very nice, and idyllic settings.
