Climbing in Finland is considered as an Every Man’s Right. However, creating new routes with bolts and anchors requires a land owner’s permission. Every Man’s Rights are based on the responsibility which means that climbing, camping etc. must not cause harm or disturb.

    * there are restrictions on walking on gardens, farmlands and plantations
    * do not disturb private houses and do not cross their yards
    * it is allowed to camp temporarily as long as there is no harm or disturb to the land owner
    * long term camping requires land owner’s permission
    * most communities and towns prohibit overnight camping on parking areas or other public places
    * it is forbidden to litter
    * use public roads to access the climbing areas and cliffs
    * Every Man’s Rights do not allow driving on private roads or off road
    * park vehicles according to the parking instructions for each climbing area
    * do not block the roads going to the fields or other farm lands
    * use paths when walking to the cliff, do not cross fields or farm lands
    * avoid yelling or loud music in climbing areas which have houses or recreation areas near by
    * open fire is prohibited without land owner’s permission, however, the use of camp stoves is allowed
    * cleaning a new route requires a land owner’s permission
    * chipping or modifying the rock is forbidden

Enjoy climbing and remember to respect the peace of the local people, the nature and the other climbers.
