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.

Rock Climbing Photo: The beautiful finger crack of Masken.

Masken 5.11c 6c+ 24 VIII- 24 E4 6a  Europe : Sweden : ... : Lilla Galgeberget
This beautiful, splitter finger crack begs to be climbed. The crux section through the steep bit goes from .4 Camalots to .5 Camalots - the hardest part for you will depend on finger size. Gain the welcome rest ledge at the top of the crux section and continue up the flake to the block/face above. Mantel onto the top.According to locals, the topout is a popular hangout spot for snakes. Place a piece before making the topout mantel just in case.Belay on gear....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
