UPPER GORGE


The Gorge is a very special place to be. The steep surrounding walls ensure that the place has a unique atmosphere which may feel claustrophobic for some, but for most it will just add to the fine climbing experience. Coupled with these good routes are some sensational waterfalls that give some of the best climbing at Rjukan. Just look at the number of stars in the Upper Gorge and you will understand why you just have to go down here to do at least one of them. Chances are that you will return again and again, to bag classic after classic.
