Hello,

I was thinking about studying in Finland for a while but before that I want to know how is it with climbing here. In my home country I have very good conditions and climbing friends so when I leave it must be worth leaving. And even though I have been in Finland many times for holiday I have never tried climbing here and I do not know anybody in Finland who is climbing. Can you please advise me how far is a rockclimbing location from Helsinki and/or Oulu? Are there any climbing websites in English?

Many thanks,

Michaela

You do realize that you are on a page that is in english and has majority of finnish crags listed, their location on a map and their topos. For even wider collection of rope climbing you would have to buy the new finnish topo book. But if the climbing locations given in this page don't impress you then you won't find much satisfaction by looking more closely. Finland is not blessed with lots of rope climbing cliffs but there's quite good bouldering to be found. Weather is usually crap but its worse in England and Norway (or so I've let myself to believe). Finding climbing buddies will not be a problem.

Thank you for your reply, I apologize for my stupid questions. I have only googled the forum and before posting my question I have not accessed the information you recommend. Now I have the information I need for now. Many thanks.

There are a number of small single-pitch crags around Helsinki (both sport and trad). There is also a good indoor rope climbing centre. Helsinki Univeristy also has a smallish indoor climbing place, which probably will be a good place to meet up with other climbers in case you will study in Helsinki.

There is a also a lot of bouldering, of which many places are accessible by bike or public transport. For the crags you need a car. Or probably in your case, a buddy with one :D

There are many worse cities in the world to be a climber than Helsinki! There are lots of bouldering places even in the city; none are super good, but lots of problems to do in the evenings after work. Then there are a few cliffs for both sport and traditional roped climbing in the greater Helsinki area, some of which you can even get to on public transport. And if you have access to a car then there are dozens more cliffs that are easily doable in a day trip from Helsinki. For example at Haukkakallio which is about an hours drive east of Helsinki, there are around 60 or 70 routes done (most listed here: http://www.ukclimbing.com/logbook/crag.php?id=2795 ) - they are up to about 25 mtrs high.

Look on the topo pages here: http://www.slouppi.net/allAreas.phtml and you'll get more ideas - although not everything is there either. I might not recommend someone comes to Finland just for a climbing holiday, but if you had another reason to visit or just wanted to tour the country then you could get a good few weeks of climbing done and see interesting bits of Finland at the same time!

Hope this helps.
