A 6b

Is it really possible that there's such an "easy" route, which is graded as 6b?

Yes, it seems to be possible, cause I just climbed one in Tapanila climbing centre. It was a corner type of 6b with more or less handle holds and few slopers. So the holds were actually quite comfortable and the route wasn't really physically demanding. Although, the moves were quite long and maybe some how more 6b'ish, so that might be the reason why it's 6b.

Outdoor rope climbing season opening

On air again...

This year's outdoor climbing season has also been opened what comes to rope climbing. A few weeks ago, we tested the quite popular cliff of Rollarit, which locates just nearby Helsinki city. Some of the left side cliff's routes were climbed, like Guru, Liidi Master and Lanttumaakari.

Easter bouldering


Places are "almost dry" (meaning quite wet), but still we got a chance to do some bouldering in Taivaskallio. Some routes were already dry, but we climbed just more like where it was dry, so not aiming for special routes.

All in all, a good way to start celebrating Easter holiday with soaking wet climbing shoes...
