One of the best sport climbing crags in Sweden with lots of high quality routes for climbers of all levels. The crag consists of firm reddish granite. Sjöända offers several types of climbing – vertical, slab and overhanging. It it is 25 m at its highest. Here you find Mr. Big 6a+ and Solarplexus 7b+ which are among the best overhanging climbing routes in Sweden. The crag is facing east with no sun on it after 14.00 a.m. in the summer. The best time for climbing here is between June and October and the cliff dries rather quickly after rainfall.
