The wall is very steep, with 20 to 30 degree overhangs. The quality of the rock is lower than other walls on Sotra, but in return the wall offers exciting hòlklatring. NB After rainfall the wall needs at least one day to dry out!

Transportation


Car: Follow highway 555 from Bergen towards Sotra. Turn left at the roundabout after Kolltveit tunnel and continue through Fjell and past Sund Centre. Follow the sign posts to Glesvær and exit toward Golta. Continue about 1 km, to a red house on the left-hand side. 100 meters further you’ll find a place to park on the left. On foot: Follow the North Sea Trail to Telavåg. About 10-15 minute walk beyond the red boat house, the path will drop quite steeply, and at the bottom of the hill you’ll see the wall on the left. The path goes through some wet terrain. Bus: Take the bus from platform 9 at Bergen bus station or Olav Kyrresgate, towards Glesvær. Alight at Golta.
