Wow, det finns en närmre väg hem också! / First ascent?


I went back to Branta trappan with Sofia today. I found two more boulder that I liked. I climbed (this)one.

If it hasn’t been climbed before I suggest:
* Name: "Wow, det finns en närmre väg hem också!"
* FA: Ola Lindberg (2012-09-15)
* Initial grade: 4
* Other: Sit start. Crimp and sidepull / crack for the hands. Up in a (layback?) crack. Good landing.

I walked via X-bow but that’s really not the shortest way. On my way back I continued north and found a trail. Followed it and was back within 5 minutes (instead of 15). GPS position. Topo available on GBO.

Lång väg hem, Branta trappan / First ascent?


Today I went to Branta trappan (by myself). Mostly to look at the area but also to do some of the easier problems. I also thought about making a simple topo (map to the different climbs) for the area.

When I played with X-bow I saw this arete 200 m further away. It looked exiting and the other problems were up in the forest. I went there but got stuck on another arete half way there.

If it hasn’t been climbed before I suggest:
* Name: Lång väg hem
* FA: Ola Lindberg
* Initial grade: 4+
* Other: I used both of the cracks on the left side of the arete. I didn’t do any sit start but that’s probably doable.

You find it if you continue on from X-bow around 100 m. You have to walk up a bit from the water to go there. GPS position. I have drawn a topo that I’ll upload to GBO.

Yesterday I started a project. I’ll take one image every day for a year. The ambition is to care about every picture. To describe how I feel every day. To seek places and people to shoot. This is my first image. Wish me luck.
