TROLLFESTNINGEN


Easily seen when driving towards Kalle from the E10, the Trolls' Fortress is a big shady crag sat high on the south side of Trolldalen, the valley that runs parallel to Øvredalen over on the opposite side of the ridge. The crag is formed from massive sheets of granite and has remarkably few natural lines. The aspect makes it rather slow to dry, though the rough rock means that the odd damp streak shouldn't spoil things to much.
