has anyone been checking the climbing / bouldering potential along the eastern coastline of estonia?

katselin muutama viikko sitten eestin rantoja lähinnä sillamäen ja narvan alueella. näkyi olevan rapautuvaa yli 20 metristäkin kalkkikiviseinää, mutta muutamin paikoin oli pieniä luolia ja seinämän pätkiä, joissa oli hyvää kiveä. kalkkikivi ei ollut poketteja täynnä vaan muistutti hiekkakiveä pyöreydessään. tuli vaan mieleen pitäisikö sinne mennä katselemaan enemmänkin...

I remember noticing the first time I went there that on one of the notes, maybe 20 Kroone - blue anyway - there is a picture of sea cliffs. I reckon its a pretty weird thing to put on one of notes if it isn't really somewhere in your country, but never investigated further. Some sea cliff climbing could be good! What have you found Samppa?

Haven't been there yet but here's something I have found out from the locals about a year ago.

Kadriorg
- North cost, East from Tallinn I guess
- Muuga Kabelikivi, 19m long, 7m high, 57m circumference

Hiiumaa, Hiidenmaa in Finnish
-Helmersen boulder area:
On this half-hectare are about 80 huge rocks.

Vergi
Vergi is one of the biggest coastal villages in Estonia. On the road from Vergi to Võsu is a beautiful forests where one should be able to admire huge boulders. I've been told that the walk to the biggest boulder in Lahemaa national Park-Ojakivi-is also fascinating.

Käsmu
There are exceptionally many boulders at Käsmu (the largest field of stones in Estonia, the big Uustalu Suurekivi). There are large boulders on the northeastern tip of Vana-Jüri, too.

Helöy,

Camussa duunissa ollessani kävi 5 hengen porukka nuoria viron boulderoijia ja pyysivät tulemaan mestoille. Boulderskene on siellä vasta aluillaan mutta reittejä on useita kymmeniä ellei satoja. Kivelaatu vaihtelevaa. Alastulot täysin tasaista peltoa tai hiekkaa.

Tsekatkaa jätkien saitti ja meilatkaa heille jos haluutte mestoille, niin jäbät opastavat kiville.

We have some really good boulders in Estonia:
* Lohusalu - 30 km to west from Tallinn. It is 5,5-6 m high, it is located on beach. 5 different problems, difficulty 4-7a.

* Aidakivi - just 7 km before Lohusalu. 4,3 m high, 4 problems, difficulty 5a-6a

* Tiirukivi - 10 km to west from Tallinn, in Tammneeme. 5,5 m high, 6-7 problems, difficulty 5a-6c

* Pärnamäe kivi - 5,8 m high, 8 problems, difficulty 4-6c

* Ellandvahe kivi, 15 km to west from Tallinn, 5,9 m high, 9 problems, difficulty 5a to 7a/7b

* Augu Suurkivi - 20 km to west, 6,9 m high, 5a-6c

* Tammispea hiidrahn - 7,8 m high, 9 problems, difficulty 5a to 6c

* Majakivi - 7 m high, all a round overhanging, 8 problems, difficulty 5a to 7a/7b

These are some of the boulders witch we have discovered during this spring-summer. The difficulties may varie, because I have climbed boulders only in Finland, (last week) and I rated them according to your ratings in Meilahti, Mellunmäki and Koivusaari.
If some of you are planning a trip to Estonia then I can show you these boulders. Maybe you can discover some new routes that are too hard for us and we can not climb them. There are lots of new different problems to discover.
And also some boulders, where we have not climbed yet, like:
* Tiirukivi, in Turbuneeme - 6,1 m high
* Painuva kivi, in Turbuneeme - 6,1 m high
* Odakivi, in Suurpea - 4,7 m high
* Jaani-Tooma Suurkivi, 7,6 m high
* Karu Suurkivi - 5,5 m high
* Pikametsa Suurkivi - 4,9 m high
* Ojakivi - 6,0 m high
* Sootaguse Lodikivi, 7 m high
* Letipea Ehalkivi - 7,6 m high
We have search them out from map, but have not found out are they climbable or not. I truly hopr they are. We also are planning to make topos and maps, that could guide to the boulders, because some of them are really hard to find.

Please let us know if you are coming to Estonia because it would be really nice to climb with boulderers from Finland.

Nice!

Can you tell something about the rock quality? What kind of rock is it? Do you have any pictures?

The rock is granite and gneiss and on some places it is ''rabakivi'' - I do not know how to pronounce it. The stone is like it is on boulders, after 3 boulders fingers needs rest one or two days. The stone is sharp on Ellandvahe and on Tiirukivi, but is very soft on Lohusalu.
You have to check it out yourself... and pipictures are http://www.zone.ee/bolderin

I'm coming to Saaremaa on 10th of July and stay there about one week. Do you have any topos or info about bouldering in Saaremaa? Referring to your list of boulders none of them seemed to be at Saaremaa.
According to accurate road and touristmaps there are plenty of stonefields and boulders which are marked as tourist attractions. Are these blocks generally access free?

Last summer I arranged the boulders tour in Estonia for a small group of peotle. Trough the summer every sunny Sunday we went out there and explored those nice boulders. It surprised me how much possibility we have here, near Tallinn, to go in for this sport.

My wish is to make our tour bigger next summer, invite more people, make more publishing.

here are some pictures of last summer: http://www.teip.ee/events.php?event_id=79

Tervist,

When I moved to Estonia 2,5 years ago I thought that it is now time to hang my climbing shoes to the ceiling and look for other sports... However, this was one of the times when I was very, very to be wrong. Therefore I would like everyone to know that:

THERE IS GOOD BOULDERING IN ESTONIA!!! :o

Although the sea banks that go up 30 m on the North coast of Estonia look promising from a distance, they are made of packed sand and therefore not suitable climbing. I have heard that they offer some ice climbing possibilities but, since I'm not into that yet, I have no personal experience. ... Before I get completely sidetracked let's return to bouldering.

One reason why it took me two years to discover the Estonian bouldering possibilities is that there are no topos available (hell, it took me 30 years to discover climbing so maybe I'm not the sharpest tool in the shed). To help myself and all the other Estonian boulderers out of this situation, I created a small web site, which is open for everyone to edit. At the moment there are some topos and if you have some material that is better than the existing, you are free to add or replace. Although far from complete, the site should give you some picture of the climbing possibilities in Estonia. So, without further blah, blah you can find the site in: http://climbestonia.pbwiki.com/

In case you have some material that you are not quite sure of whether it is worth adding to the site, please follow the rule "when in doubt, spit it out". If you are still not sure I'm more than happy to give a second thumbs up or down. Just send me a mail at camel.investor@gmail.com.

Parimatega, Mikael
