Video - Whippin up the westcoast

I normally have a hard time making it out to the rocks during the summer months due to spending most of my time working. I try to stay in shape by training on my home wall, and look at the time as a yearly brake from pushing myself to send. However, at some occations I find my way to the crags nearby my home. This summer, I acctaully even made it up a couple of problems I've been wanting to do for a long time, along with repeating some old classics for the camera. Some of them ended up in this edit.

Featured problems:
Mon gôut 7B+, Ulorna
Shelter 7B+, Tjörn
En världsomsegling under havet 7C, Lyse kyrka (sec. ascent)
Z-sprickan 7B, Häller
Dogma 7A, Häller

Watching Fabian send Untermensch after his massive topout-failure, actually only made me more 
impressed with him as a climber than if he where to have done it right away.

Seing Anja on the rocks is allways inspiring. She climbs with so much energy and power that I sometimes find myself taking a step back incase she explodes. These photos are from Fruberget in Västervik, where we met during the annual Bouldermeet a couple of weeks ago.

Jänkarproblemet, Öckerö

Thomas Schermer Jänkarproblemet
At the end of August, Thomas Schermer visited me for a couple of days for us to go out and take photos around my home turf. Most of the times it was me doing the climbing while he was behind the camera, but at a couple of times the roles changed. Here he is about to send Jänkarproblemet.
