Lindal Open

I’m trying to put together a post with some pics from Oskars and my roadtrip to Norway from which we got back last weekend. In the mean time I’ll post some snaps from the first stop of the trip, Bohuslän, where we spent a couple of days attending Maja and Stefans wedding. Their big day […]

The Gypsy-mobile

Some Pics From Summer, so far.

Presles, Meiringen, Zurich, Åland… Tomorrow I’m off to Germany for a few days of work. Bah!  

Motivation

I honestly don’t know why I try to maintain a blog in the first place. I hardly ever get the time or motivation to update it. One thing that struck some time ago is that while climbing motivation goes up everything thats related to climbing just becomes less relevant, only the actual climbing matters. In […]

A Family Trip to the Heart of Sweden

Last weekend Five Ten and I were invited to participate in a Climbing festival at Sjöända in Småland. Jim Wasmuth, one of Swedens sport climbing pioneers provided us with a gorgeous cottage overviewing the lake Ämten. Johan Luhr gave a great slideshow to celebrate his 50th birthday and at midnight Said continiued the show and showed […]

Tyresö, Spring 2011, Narcissism.

Träskberget on the Tyresö peninsula har been all the rage this spring, at least among my friends.

Johan just turned 50 and put up his latest 8b, Oldfinger, just a couple […]

Patagonia: Bouldering snippets

One of the best suprises with the climbing around El Chalten was probably not the long approaches but rather that the hillsides around town hosted some good bouldering. Good as in really good bouldering. Recently I read something like “Bouldering in Patagonia is like masturbating in a whore house”. Who knows, maybe it’s true, but the […]

French Connections

Last Saturday Daniel Andersson had a particularly good day of sports climbing at Östnoraberget, half an hour of south of Stockholm, sending both Arc de Triomphe and Vive la France in an annoyingly easy manner making the rest of us look even weaker and more uncoordinated than usual.

We are brave

Parts of the Tatatataa collective joined us to Åland over Easter. Martin filmed and and edited in his usual manner.

Aurinko paistaa

Mainland Finland probably isn’t famous for it’s climbing but for sure there are a couple of gems. Two of them are Falkberget and the sandstone!!?? bouldering area E75 close to Lahti. A couple of weekends ago I was invited show some slides (pics) and got the opportunity to climb at these two locations. Nice rock, cool […]
