Stetind – «Normalruta» – South East Ridge

South East “Classic” Ridge of Stetind is an amazing alpine rock route with easy to moderate climbing on quality granite. Technically this route is quite simple so we can take larger groups (with multiple guides) up and still move in good style and safety. The climbing on the South East Ridge is phenomenal and the views of the surrounding coastal alpine peaks are something hard to describe with words. The route has one technical and fun crux referred to by the first ascentionist as the “the ten finger hold traverse”. The whole experience of climbing Stetind is beautiful and if you have the opportunity this is a must do climb while visiting northern Norway.
