Welcome to Helsinki.

There are pretty good indoor climbing facilities in Helsinki. For roped climbing there are two walls which are fairly easy to get to and quite good. The university has a small but well maintained wall in Kumpula and there is a bigger wall in Tapanila. Both are a short bus ride from the centre. There are fantastic bouldering facilities close to Pasila train station. I am mostly bouldering here over the winter. You would be welcome to join me, but it's also really easy just to turn up and climb. At the moment there is the chance for ice or mixed climbing but you have to be pretty keen.

Just ask if you want to know anything else. Tony

Sorry, I should add - it's really easy to turn up at the bouldering cave and climb. At the roped climbing venues you need to do a short test. At Tapanila this is trivial (assuming that your belaying skills etc. are fine - which they probably are after a semester of climbing). At Kumpula this is a problem as the instructor is only there at certain times. Perhaps someone can find out when this is. If you want to rope climb, the easiest thing to do is to do the test in Tapanila and ask them for a certificate, you can then show them this in Kumpula and climb there. If you are a student or work at the university the Kumpula wall is pretty cheap.

Just a little correction to what Tony's saying: everyone climbing in Kumpula has to do the test there, a certificate from other climbing facilities is not valid. At least that's how it was a few years back when I was an instructor there. The instructor is there on Wednesdays, from I believe around 17.30 until around 20.00, so that's when you can take the test.

Ok, sorry about that. I never did a test but that was in 2004. My information is very out of date.
