More from Hamburgö

As I said before, Stenkyrka is a pretty sweet area.  Unfortunately there are some access issues as the folks that have their summer house next to the boulders apparently don't take too kindly to climbers.  This generally mean one of several things....
1)  Choose an approach to the boulders that does not go through the middle of their property and don't climb on the boulders next to the houses.
2)  Don't visit the area in the summer when the residents are there.  I'm told they are there most weekend during the summer and you can generally tell if someone is home by the presence of a boat docked out front.  
3)  State you have the right to be there and do whatever the hell you want, further aggravating the situation.  

If people do get a chance to visit this area I hope there are no incidents.  Here are a few more pictures.

Looks like a nice area! Must go there. Have only been to Hynnö area! Important with the access issue and good thing that you mentioned it here.
