try these:
Athlon Gym - between Kamppi-station and Forum-shopping center. (in the same building as Scandic Hotel) check it out.
http://www.gymathlon.com/yhteystiedot.html
nice location, nice problems. costs 10e per entry.

Pasila Cave - quite near Pasila railway station (just one stop from central railway-station)
http://www.slouppi.net/cave.htm
costs 5e per entry.

Or get yourself to Liikuntamylly, the sports-center in Myllypuro. just Alongside the metro-track to east.
(Though I hear that the routes are fairly easy at the moment.)
costs 2e.

You can do bouldering in Tapanila climbing center ( http://www.kiipeilykeskus.com/ylkartta.html ). Accessible by local train, just before Tikkurila and a small hike. costs 10e per entry.

Or you could go to Kumpula, http://www.climbing.fi/sake/skpaikat.html (the first map) . But Kumpula bouldering is fairly limited, so unless your in the neighbourhood, it might not be worth visiting. But has some roped climbing aswell. Kumpula also has a small issue, that you should be able to present some sort of card of certificate that you know how to climb. Or you must attend the proof-of-knowledge-test which can be done twice a week when there is a representative of the Finnish Alpine club present.

As for every mentioned place, if you buy a card for 10 entries or more, you usually get a better price (the more entries you buy, the better the price), so do consider that aswell if you're going to stay awhile.

oh. and please ask if you need to know more.

Cheers for the info, already checked out the kumpula bouldering, but i agree it was a bit limited but still good fun.
thanks again
ps can you climb outside anywhere any overhanging caves or walls that dont get affected by the snow

bouldering outside may be limited right now. there is a lot of snow on boulders and humid air coming from sea freezes on stone. you may go and see if the block at koivusaari has dry lines to be climbed. also, angelniemi about an hour away from helsinki may be dry as it's pretty steep face and the problems don't top out.

in december there were quite a few climbable days but it's pretty much gone until 20th march, i'm afraid.

if you're really itching to get outside, wait for a clear weekend and catch a ferry to ahvenanmaa. should be tolerable there, i guess.

Welcome to Athlon! Great location, good wall, no crowds!

Cave at Pasila is also good but open for public only for few hours every saturday!
