Voimasanat first ascent

This is a story about first ascent of Voimasanat 8B+ back in 28th of August 2012. It’s a rare thing to find a beautiful, unclimbed line with superb rock quality and perfect holds. A line that is hard and challenging, in a beautiful location, and not too far away from your home.

But sometimes you do get lucky. And that’s when you put some serious effort and emotions to it.

A short story about projecting Armoton from Spring 2014 till Spring 2022 and finally sending it.

It all started when my friend Sami showed his project to me and we figured out a hook beta to the middle part. On Autumn 2014 Sami made the First Ascent of Armoton, but my journey continued till Spring 2022, when I finally made a repeat to it at age of 46. What a journey it was!

Projecting vs Sending

Projecting or Sending, you might think one is better than the other. A good climbing season usually has the right amount of both, but having the perfect combination can be a bit difficult at times.

Here is a short film about bouldering, projecting and sending in Fontainebleau, Luohua, Espoo, Vaasa, Lofoten Islands and Rovaniemi on Season 2019.

Bouldering in Albarracín & Alcañiz

A short trip to Albarracín and Alcañiz during Christmas time in 2018. If you have ever planned to visit these two locations here's a glimpse what these places have to offer!

Even though sending wise this trip did not went quite according to plan, the place, the forest, the mountains, the people, the magnificent boulders and the all sunny weather made this one of the best trips I have ever had! Just can't wait another visit to these places after a proper training period without any injuries.

Glimpses of the Sending Spirit

A short film about bouldering and projecting in Luohua, Åland Islands, Martti Servo block in Rovaniemi and Lofoten Islands on Season 2018.

Finally a year where at least something went according to the plan. Luckily there's still a lot more to do and to try for the years to come!
