Freyr offers about a dozen sectors of very varied, high quality limestone, all within walking distance of one another and among which Belgium's highest climbable rock face. An-all around-crag.


Freyr is the biggest and most prominent climbing crag in Belgium, offering pretty much everything a climber can desire from any limestone crag: multipitch climbing; slab, vertical and overhang climbing, a great atmosphere and easy sleepover facilities. Ideal for weekends or even longer periods of intense climbing. Freyr is immensely popular and arguably pretty harshly graded, so many of the easier routes have become pretty polished but remain nevertheless real classics.

An updated edition of the guidebook has been released in the fall of 2022.

접근 문제들

As crag maintenance and renting costs are borne by the local Club Alpin Belge (CAB), membership from a recognized climbing association is required (controls of membership cards are frequent).

Nederlandse klimmers die lid zijn van de NKBV hebben toegang op vertoon van hun lidkaart.


The crag is sandwiched between the river Meuse and the township of Freyr, just South of Anseremme. There is a designated parking spot (exclusively for climbers!) on the South edge of Freyr.

Alternatively leave your car in Anseremme and walk along the Eastern bank of the Meuse to reach some easy sectors after 10 minutes (Carrière Synclinale, Dalle Ecole and Fissures Georget) then the bottom of Merinos (additional 5 minutes).

Reaching Freyr by public transport takes roughly 2,5 hours from Brussels (train stations in nearby Dinant or Anseremme + unfrequent bus service towards Beauraing).

숙박 장소

Climbers are allowed to spend the night in the designated CAB campsite, about one minute walking from the parking spot. Tents can only be installed between 6 PM and 10 AM. Expect a very inviting atmosphere, with dozens of climbers spending the night on weekends - it's ideal terrain for tents or hammocks and it's allowed to make bonfires in the designated fire places. CAB or KBF members (Belgian federations) are to pay €2 per night, others €4. There is also a refuge, a small barrack offering shelter to about 24 people (€4 or €8 depending on your membership status). The local terrain manager will collect the money in the morning, and if not you are kindly requested to leave the correct amount in the managers letterbox (next to the refuge/shelter, tagged 'gardien').

Climbers looking for a more comfortable stay can stick to one of the many hotels, hostels or bed and breakfasts in the area.


Setting up new routes or retro-bolting in the area is not allowed without permission of the CAB.

Please reduce your use of chalk to a minimum and remove tick marks when done.

Using trad gear to improve route safety is allowed.

Many routes in Freyr have a top-out finish - please do not install top ropes on these routes.

Rappelling down is only allowed in case of an emergency.

Freyr is situated in a designated Natura 2000 site. It's a nature reserve: the place is pretty clean, keep it that way or clean up any thrash you come across! Some routes can be tagged with a red-and-white ribbon, which means the endangered Peregrine Falcon nests along the route, so please don't climb that route that time.
