Since mid-March I´ve been cragging around SE-Finland quite a lot. I decided to skip spring in the Alps due to unfavorable climbing conditions. Of course one can always climb something, but getting stronger on rock seemed to fit better to my plans to spend next winter season in Patagonia.
Weather`s been suprisingly good, almost too warm in my opinion. Rising amount of climbers in South Carelia meant that it was easier to find people whom were keen to climb with a rope. Bouldering can be fun, and it´s good here, but you won´t climb any big alpine route with boulderers endurance.
Busiest weeks meant five days of climbing and two days of brushing new routes. Plan was to take some harder sport project, but eventually climbed just meters. Though “Tarzan Bundolo, 7c” felt doable and I actually did all the moves in a session and managed to climb it in two parts.
My camera was broken in May and I got it fixed just two weeks ago, so these pictures are random shots along the way.
In two weeks I´ll head back to my own element, which is alpine. Four months in Chamonix ahead! Hopefully all this rock climbing pays back.
Thank you all crag fellows. Such a fun spring it was!
