Urban Bouldering

Gothenburg has plenty of bouldering and some of it happens to be right in the middle of town.  One of the more striking pieces of urban bouldering is a tall slab project that brings new meaning to the term accessible.  The line itself is pretty incredible as a few thin holds mark an improbable path up the middle of the wall.  This problem is not for the faint of heart as the holds spread-out and get progressively worse as you approach the still undone crux just below the lip.

The setting is actually kind of enduring for reasons other than the non-approach as urban rock possesses it's own special kind of beauty.

Tompa trying not to think about the impending fall that awaits.  Good thing we've got a grip of pads
