Nissedal is located in the central southern Norway in a region called Telemark. It is home to a number of striking granite domes dotted around Norway's sixth largest lake, Nisservatn. These domes offer some great climbing for those seeking long routes on perfect granite similar to that glaciated granite domes found at Toulomne Meadows near Yosemite.

This MiniGuide scratches the surface of the climbing in the region and only describes samples from the two most popular venues - Hægefjell and Baremlandsfjellet. The general climbing scene here is good and the camp ground below Hægefjell is usually busy with a great atmosphere. Queuing can be a problem on some of the most popular routes, especially on Via Lara at weekends.
