Climbing in the Swedish countryside.

Description 

When you think of climbing in Scandinavia, Sweden probably isn't the first place that comes to mind. Neighboring Norway, with its legendary mountains and fjords, gets all of the attention.

Sweden does, however, offer some excellent climbing. You may not find the sweeping walls that you would find in Norway, but there is some excellent cragging in Sweden. The area of Bohuslan offers some of the finest trad cragging anywhere.

The locals are super friendly, and the prices are a relief to anyone who has spent time in Norway. The next time you are climbing in Scandinavia, check out Sweden - you might be pleasantly surprised by what you find.


Getting There 

There are a number of ways to get to Sweden. For climbers wishing to visit Bohuslan, Gothenburg (or Goteborg) is likely the most convenient airport.

Catch

Catch 5.12- 7a+ 25 VIII+ 25 E5 6a PG13  Europe : Sweden : ... : Stora Vaggen
Stunning line that ascends Hallinden's biggest wall via a cobbly finger crack intrusion. Despite the crack not being splitter, the quality of the rock is quite good and protects well. Catch is sustained, unique, and an incredible rock climb.Route finding: the finger crack culminates at a stance on a sloping ledge. At his point, either go straight up on runout 7+(?) or traverse hard right walking the ledge until it ends and then making some runout 6+ face moves to gain another ledge in a dihed...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
