Sweden West Coast Climbing
Climbing On The West Coast Of Sweden in Bosuland
The West Coast of Sweden has some fine granite crags, formed by glaciers on the way to the sea. Most crags face west and catch the sun. The climbing is mainly up cracks so jamming is essential!
Swedes grade their climbs a little differently to the UK.
This is another spectacular crag, home of many hard routes. Note the wall in the shadow on the right.

This is the same crag and it goes down to the sea!
This is my first 6- (F6a, 5.10b, E1) lead. The first 5 metres of the lower crack is the crux. The rest
A close up of the start. Another 6- (which I also lead) follows the flake on the left. This again had some small
