Trollryggen is a peak along the Trolltindene ridge along the Romsdalen valley. It is located in Rauma Municipality in Møre og Romsdal county, Norway. The Rauma River and the European route E136 highway lie just to the east of the ridge at the bottom of the valley.[2]

The north face of the peak is part of the famous Trollveggen (Troll Wall)—the highest vertical cliff in Europe. The highest peak on that ridge is Store Trolltind, about 700 metres (2,300 ft) to the north. It is also a part of Reinheimen National Park.
