Sandspollen is a popular recreational and boating destination, with good opportunities for swimming and picnicking. The bouldering takes place on gneis of good quality in fantastic seaside scenery. Several of the walls are idyllically located and are well suited for bringing the whole family out bouldering. Especially Kystartilleriveggen with the moderate classic Kystartilleri is definitively worth a visit. Enden av veien veggen and Kommandørveggen is recommended for some harder action with Knut Petter and Hovedbatteriet as two recommended problems. There is some potential for more development for people who wants to put their mark on this nice bouldering destination.

In the autumn, the Hjortelus fly can be troublesome at times in the forest, and one should always check for ticks after a visit.

Pleace keep a low profile, leave no traces, remove tickmarks and don't play music, enjoy!


The potential for bouldering at Sandspollen was discovered by Knut Petter Meen on a family trip along Kyststien in 2011. Kommandørveggen was the first wall discovered and formed the basis for the development of a large number of smaller walls around the small peninsula.

The main contributors in the development of the crag have been Knut Petter Meen and Jørgen Bryn Henriksen.


The area is access sensitive!

From the western portal of the Oslofjord tunnel, follow Rv281 towards Tofte. After approx. 2km, at Grønsand, take down Færgestadveien and follow it to the bottom of the gravel pit. At the bottom, immediately turn left and park at the end of the road. Then follow Kyststien past the sheep ground and out towards Kinnartangen. If you want to go to Kommandørveggen or Sjøveggen, it is most convenient to park down at Færgestad (down a very steep road) and follow Kyststien north.

The Lagtangen peninsula, where "Fiskehytta" is located, is off limits for bouldering and development.
