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.

Featured Route For Sweden
The fine slimline

Slimline 5.11+ 7a 24 VIII 24 E4 6a  Europe : Sweden : ... : Valserod
An awesome route with a bouldery start and a pumpy finish. Climb up easy terrain to the base of a body length roof at the start of a slim crack. Boulder past the roof and enjoy quality face climbing and finger-locking all the way to the top. Build an anchor at the small tree (backed up with gear) in order to save your rope from the crack. Scramble to the top then walk climbers right to the bolted anchor near Villskudd. Rap with one 60m rope to the ground....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
