Peace Out, Sweden!

It was a great two months in Sweden for me. Lots and lots of (writing) work and (flood-causing) rain -but also as much training, and some climbing outside.

Below are some photos of the last climbing days there.
En route from Karlstad to Filipstad, to climb at a cliff called Hämtjärn.

Me packing carelessly for the 15 meter approach.

Me taking a top-rope exploration of a climb called Jesus, din Räddning (7c+)

David on his then unsent project, Hästkanonen (The Horse Cannon). He needed to move a few bolts before he would send it.

We saw too much of this during the summer...

Preparing to move two bolts and replace the anchor on Hästkanonen

A route that I did on this trip, Pluttan (7b)

Skårepumpen: the gym where we lifted during the summer


Bouldering in Färjestad, another local bouldering area with vertical, spread-out problems

David doing the FA of a new problem (V8 or so)

David getting ready to send The Horse Cannon with the new bolts.

Below is a movie David made about the final day I had in Sweden, also our final climbing day there together for the summer. (David has since been back to bolt some new lines.)
