VEMORK BRIDGE


The popular Vemork Bridge Area is quick and easy to get to and has a collection of quality climbs ranging from fairly easy to pretty tough. It has a similar enclosed atmosphere to the Upper Gorge though slightly less imposing, but it does benefit from the degree of shelter offer by the high valley walls, which keep the conditions stable. The routes tend to be less spectacular than in the Upper Gorge, but at more amenable grades and the quick access means that most visitors will spend some time climbing here.
