VAASA


Bouldering around Vaasa started in summer 2000 when enthusiasts from Helsinki started to develop the dark and blocky forest. Pet cemetary, which is still the major concentration of boulders, was found by Martin Nugent while jogging.

The bouldering around Vaasa is among the top 3 bouldering destinations in Finland offering all kinds of problems from Fontainebleau-like technique thingies to roofs. Rock quality is mostly good.

At the moment development has spread out so the topo is out of date. Still the topo will get you more than started! Today there are some 300 problems in the forests from 3 to 8a. These are mainly "true lines", so not many variations.
