Many thanks for the info on Nuuksio, i think I have now got the locations for Solvallan & Kauhala sorted and may see some of you there on Saturday ?
Unfortunately I am not so clear on RUOVEDEN ?
there appears to be two separate locations HELVETINJÄRVI and KALLIOJÄRVI; they both appear to be north of Tampere off of Route 66 to Ruovesi. They must be quite close to one another ??
I have been to one of these locations before, i think it was KALLIOJÄRVI as there was some easy angled ice there ( 50 / 60' ) and it was only a 600m walk from the road ( we parked at a T junction ) & it looks like the location sketch available on this link ( http://www.mountainshop.fi/topos/kallioj.jpg
) BUT i have been using the Finnish Citizens Mapsite to locate the exact place and have problems matching the map info I get back from the Citizens Mapsite.
When i search on Ruoveden, & select Ruovenlahti, Ruovesi, I get a great detailed map ( http://kansalaisen.karttapaikka.fi/kart ... lang=en-GB
) and then when I scroll down twice, I get this map ( http://kansalaisen.karttapaikka.fi/kart ... lang=en-GB
) ...... and ....... I think the crag is shown at approx the 2.00 o'clock position on the right of the map ?? is this correct ??
As for HELVETINJÄRVI ..... please does anyone have a sketch for the location of this place ? as when I search using the Finnish Citizens Mapsite, I get some place south east of Tampere which is obviously quite wrong ?
Many thanks for any assistance
