2006-09-19 Climbing @ Klättercentret

Tuesday night's climbing session at Klättercentret was a lot of fun. Daniela showed me this route of yellow-colored holds.

After watching her finish the route, I tried it. It's rated 7B, beyond my abilities. I got past the big yellow hold, but I couldn't go much farther. As you can se, she made it all the way up.

After climbing the walls for a while, I tried a few problems on the bouldering walls.

This one is fun. It starts on the left side, moves up along the edge, and then traverses across to the right.

Marie, Christian & Lisa.

2006-09-14 Thursday @ Klättercentret

Paula's sister Boel was in top form. Go girl!


“The next hold is where?

Paula tackling an interesting (and as far as we could tell, unrated) route of orange holds.


“No pictures!”

Anna attacks the orange route.



I climbed a nice and challenging route of red holds on the left side of the tall wall.

It's near the limit of what I can do, so it's not easy, but still fun.

Matt on the other hand can climb routes several grades more difficult. Go Matt!

Lisa tried a different route of red holds that I haven't tried yet. It looks quite difficult.

Wait a minute. That one isn't red! :)

“It's too far”

If at first you don't succeed,

Try, try again!



I like the shadows in these photos — they help to give a sense of depth. The light is provided by spotlights to the right.

Anna the spider-woman.


Paula again.

Mårten again.

Lisa tries the notorious route of orange holds.

Of course, I had to try it too.

It's tricky and fun.

Hi, mom!

Go, Paula!

Spider-woman again. :)

Finally, a few bouldering shots of Paula and Anna.

This route of blue holds is quite easy, but it's a lot of fun.

Nice shoulder muscles, Anna! :)

The only slightly tricky part for me is getting both hands on the big blue hold. Once I have that, the rest is a cinch.

Thanks to the folks at Klättercentret for putting together so many good new problems on the bouldering walls!
