Climbing in the Swedish countryside.
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.
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.
