Nice one !

In my opinion one of the best problem at Vo-stenarna. Fa almost 15 years back. Only a handful repetitions and something to visit and try the next time you are in Västervik. The forest is out of the way and this block is seen from the road to Rödaväggen.

Season 16 no 1 FA

First day out in 16 and i had the pleasure in sending a new problem at Svartaväggen VO-stenarna.
this is an old project and comes down to 3 hard moves in the start of the problem. Freakshow will be the name of the game...

Climbing comp and setting problems !

Västervik was host for one more competition. This time the format was a bit different and more like a fun comp that anyone could participate in. 50 problems from font 3-8A and you get points for the 10 hardest. Juniors and kids had there run and men and women had there round later on. Elias Tullberg won the male category and Fredrika Fabri was the strongest lady of the day. booth climbing for the climbing club in Västervik. Setting where done by me and Jim Wasmuth with guest appearance from lokals. Last weekend we had an setting course and some people are in for starting to build problems.

Mynta Rasmussen made her first comp and as a father I'm proud to se that she had a lot of fun. The approach for the comp have been zero regular training and she did quite well. Hopefully she will get some interest in training in the future...

Merry christmas !

Another nice day today. Brushed and tried two new great lines at Korslöt Köping. A small bush walk and i did find 3 more big blocks. There is a really nice and high line on one of them. These area can get big and i keep finding new stuff on my tripps here... :)

Bubble boy Alberga !

This problem is really nice ! The crux crimp broke on an early send try, making the hold a bit smaller. don't know if it affects the grade since over al this is an resistans problem, its more about the flow and go... managed a send today one day from christmas the weather is super weird :)

The new area !

New area in Vastervik ! from stefan rasmussen on Vimeo.

Weather is ok between showers and storm. Only problem is humidity at the moment. Today i did a new problem at Häggebo, Side show 7C  is a tricky little problem with great sloper moves and an high heal. Later i gave Odium some more tries, but this problem will require condition and a fresh body. Hard awkward and full body power will  be needed to get this one in the bag 8B seams like an fair grade on it... more on that when its done...
