I'm moving to Sweden in a month or two (travel rules permitting) and wondering if there is anyone on here who is based in Sweden or who has contacts or advice to find partners.
I will be mobile, but I think I wil base myself near the climbing just north of Gothenburg for the Autumn.
Would be great to have a few people to go climbing with
I have only recently moved to Sweden, so hopefully someone else will come along with better advice, but maybe helpful as a starting point:
- 27crags.com is useful for finding crags. You can also see who the moderator is for each crag, often a local climbing club. They might be worth getting in touch with.
- Bergsport.se is the Swedish BMC (I think). They also have a list of affiliated clubs here: https://bergsport.se/klatterforbundet/om-klatterforbundet/klubbar/
- Plenty of climbing-specific and general outdoors activities groups on Facebook. Worth using both English and Swedish search terms.
- Some have recommended Meetup (tends to have more of an international expat/migrant membership), although there aren't any climbing groups on it in my area
Thanks for this, super helpful
Enjoy, Bohuslän (an hour north of Gbg) is superb if you're into single-pitch granite jamming! I've replied to a couple of threads in the past with some useful info - see the links below:
In particular, 'Klättertorpets guide till Bohuslän' Facebook page is very active and welcoming to non-Swedish speakers, so you should be able to get going with that.
I'm no longer in Sweden but lived there for a couple of years so have some idea of the scene - if you have any questions, feel free to email me.
Thanks Droyd that's really helpful
I hope to be in Bohuslan in August and maybe into Sept.
I would also consider climbing near Gothenberg
That's great, I think I may well end up basing myself in Bohuslan. Have you been there before?
Wales will soon start re-opening to outdoor activities, but fear in local communities persists, and it will not be business as usual. What can climbers and walkers do to ensure they're not part of the problem? Snowdonia resident Mark Reeves looks...
