The Wall of Witches – powerful, fun and moderate

Hornelen Via Ferrata welcomes you to the Wall of Witches, a guided trip on the lower half of mighty Hornelen. First you traverse the Eagle Hill, where you will get to know the equipment and how it works, test the grips and challenge gravity. Further on, we will climb the powerful and steep Wall of Witches until we reach Smalsarhuken, a shelter where we can eat our lunch and enjoy the view in good company. Here you can dry your sweat as well as feel the power of accomplishment! This trip does not end up on top of Hornelen, and it is not possible to continue to the top on fot.

After this, you follow the return trial back to Basecamp Hornelen. This is the trip for you if you are in shape, has tried Via Ferrata or climbing before, wants to challenge your fear of heights and have a nice experience in nature with airy exposure over the fjord. This trip takes about 6 hours from start to finish.

The route is graded to a C/D, and offers horisontal and veritcal parts, both going up and down. There are also overhanging sections, which ups the difficulty. One should be prepared to hang on one arm to clip the carabiners in some spots.
