there is bouldering and the possibility of shorter routes on the the rocks below the lighthouse. There is a crag not so far away at Hamina which has some OK climbs but seems rather sad and neglected and could do with some visitors to clean it up. It also has some of the most oddly placed bolts I've ever seen.

Probably lots more around the area but thats all I've seen.

cheers,
Toby.

There is also a 'crag' shortly before arriving in the Kotka hospital. You get there by driving from Helsinki, following the signs for the hospital and then turning right one or two intersections before the hospital. You follow a slightly curving road and the crag is right next to a parking lot of a school (I think it's a school of some kind). And I mean right next to the parking lot, you virtually belay on the asphalt.

The crag is partly result of rock processing (probably to make room for the parking lot), but mostly natural rock. Offering only trad climbing (or bouldering at the bottom), the cliff is more than 10 meters high at the highest point, slightly less at the lowest. Possibility for top anchors is very limited on the right (higher) side of the cliff. Some of the lines seem very hard, some are easier. I've only climbed a few lines on the left side, but there appears to be some activity at the crag, judging from chalk marks.

If anyone has any information about the routes and grades on this crag, please do post your facts here.

Best regards,

Ossi

The crag you mention must be the one located in front of Kymenlaakson Ammattikorkeakoulu Tekniikan toimipiste, known as "Tekun kallio".? There is a topo made of it although I don´t have it here. Actually there is also one bolted route, well actually one bolt and some pitons (rather old).. When we get enough time we will place som bolts and some top-anchors on some of the routes. There is some nice traditional routes also.

That's the crag I'm talking about. If the topo becomes available, please let us know.

Regards,

Ossi

Thanks for your replies. A hint for all climbers living near Kotka is that there are huge boulders near the island of Kirkonmaa. If yor take a look on the map there is an island called Vuorisaari. Near this island there are good boulders. Vuorisaari also might have a potential for slab routes. didn´t have a closer look but the cliff might be around 15-20m high. All of the mentioned cliffs/boulders are only accessible by boat which limits access. Check it out!

Hate to be the party pooper but Vuorisaari is a part of the Natura2000. There's some rear moss, hohkasammal or something. So be cautious out there. No need for access issues.
