Rockclimbing at Grönbrinksberget (South Stockholm)

Date: 14th May, 2017

This is yet another crag located in the Södertälje (Fituna, South of Stockholm). The area can be accessed by SL bus (Line 783, Fitunavägen). The topos were rated from simple 5 to 6b+, 6c. The average height of the rock-wall was around 70-80 ft. The cracks were excellent part of the crags. A bit simpler crags (about 40 ft. high) at Vårdberget can also be checked-out. .

My attempt at cracks
The best season to visit Grönbrinksberget is just before the summer starts. The vegetation growing on the rocks sometimes can cause obstacles or minor injuries.

Another nice crack
