Welcome to Kolsås Klatreklubb and Vulkan Klatresenter


Our climbing centre is located in down town Oslo next to popular Mathallen. Our beginners walls are 10.5 meters high, mostly vertical. For the intermediate and experienced climber, there are 14 meters high walls, ranging from 5° to 30° overhang. We also have a small but excellent bouldering section where the strong can meet.

Climbing is a two person activity and a belay certification is needed to climb in our facilities. If you have never climbed before, we offer beginners courses that lead to Brattkort (national certification standard issued by the Norwegian Climbing Federation). If you already know how to belay on top rope or lead, we offer a belay certification test (you need a climbing partner to take this test).
