Bouldering surronded by farms and forests

Bouldering surronded by farms and forests

Besides great rock quality, a multitude of boulders on different levels and easy access, Källbergahygget offers a tour of the Swedish countryside.

“You can’t park here! The farmer has to be able to pass with his tractor.”

It’s the annual climbing event, Houdini Boulder BloKCout, and event organizer Magnus Ryde is trying to direct hundreds of eager climbers to the right spot and at the same time stay on good terms with the local farmer.

The spot chosen for the event is Källbergahygget - a clear cut in the woods an hour north of Stockholm. To get here you follow a small country- side road from Uppsala that winds between farms and small villages. An even smaller dirt road takes
you into a dense forest of pine and spruce and you soon find yourself in a large clearing surrounded by tranquility and a heavy scent of moss and earth. And dozens of fantastic boulder problems.

As the glaciers retreated north at the end of the last ice age, boulders and rocks were left scattered all over Sweden. This is why you can find great boulder areas in the middle of the woods in Swe- den, far away from the mountains.

“Källbergahygget has been dismissed by many climbers over the years,” says Robert Rundin, Houdini Friend and co-creator of Houdini Boulder BloKCout. “During the summer of 2013 a local climber decided to really give the area a chance and he was rewarded right away. It has a great concentration of boulders, good problems on every boulder and nice rock quality. All this combined makes Källbergahygget a great spot close to the city.”

Thanks to the Right of Public Access in Swe- den, you don’t need any permission to climb here, but make sure you do not leave anything behind.

The location? 59°52’08.4”N 17°59’57.8”E. Have fun!
