Tipped off

As per usual I've been searching for new boulders. Of course the amount of rock in the region is staggering and can be quite overwhelming at times. Fortunately there are a few other folks that are also on the hunt and we occasionally pool our resources. I was recently tipped of to a large boulder about 40 minutes from Gothenburg and whet on a reconnaissance mission.

The boulder was quality but a morning rain had left it damp and we only were able to clean and climb one line. There are several more to be done with one standout that is probably really hard. I just wish it was closer to town.

Per-Ola on the one problem that was done.

Slopey rail to pinch gastone.

yes. it's too bad that there weren't more climbable block as all the others didn't pan out
